We want all the projects we fund to embrace the three key themes of:

  • People-led – This means the people you’ll be working with will be meaningfully involved in the development, design and delivery of your project. Have you spoken to people in your local community about what they need and what’s important to them? Have you listened to what they've said & used it to develop your project
  • Strengths-based – We’d like to support people and communities to build on the knowledge, skills and experience they already have to make the changes they want. What is working well in your community? How will your project help to build on these successes and make the most of the resources the community already has?
