Who they support

The grants we make reflect our interest in advancing wellbeing. Our grants are made under the categories of arts, social action and the environment. We have not made any fixed budget allocations under each category. This allows us to be flexible and make judgements based on demand and quality of individual applications as they come in

  • The average annual spending of grantees has been £6 million
  • The average age of charities supported has been 20 years.

Grant criteria

We aim to advance the wellbeing of people, society and the natural world by focusing on the arts, environment and social action. We believe these areas can make an important contribution to wellbeing.

Grant details

Organisations We prioritise UK-registered charities with an income between £100,000 and £10m. If your income is greater than this we will only consider a grant if you are uniquely placed to help meet our funding objectives. We call this the ‘only they can do it’ test. National significance We want our funds to make a difference, with as wide an impact as possible. This may involve creating art of the highest quality; working across a wide geographical area; or sharing, expanding or replicating successful initiatives. We also recognise it may be necessary to change the system, and that by influencing policy, campaigning or adopting other approaches more far-reaching and longer-term benefits are possible. National significance may look different in each of our categories: Arts – the creation of new work in itself has the potential to create a national or international legacy to inspire others. Using excellence as a key criterion is designed to strengthen and widen impact, thus demonstrating UK-wide significance. Partnerships, whether cross-art form, cross-sector or geographical, may also enhance this significance, and touring may contribute to a national footprint. Environment – certain species and habitats have national significance in themselves, due to their rarity. Some organisations occupy a distinctive, national niche; alternatively, the issue being tackled may be relevant to all or a large part of the UK. We also consider the biodiversity of the UK Overseas Territories to be of national and international importance. Social Action – we look to support organisations whose work is rooted in practical experience and applied at a national or UK level. This significance may result from the importance of the subject tackled or the approach taken.
