The UK Portfolio tests and grows bold ideas that put people in the lead to address long-term social issues and to improve the quality of life across the UK and internationally.

This is achieved through three strands:

Bringing People Together – We support communities to be part of and celebrate events of UK-wide significance, we fund activities that:

  • Support local projects to improve the quality of life for people and communities.
  • Amplify the voices of people and communities to help create stronger connections between communities

.Growing Great Ideas – We support the growth or adaptation of great ideas across the UK by:

  • Supporting collective/ joint responses to tackling important social issues from the perspective of those most impacted by them.
  • Supporting those most likely to face disadvantage and increasing their opportunities.

Exploring New Approaches – We develop and test ways of building a stronger civil society

  • Testing new approaches to grant-making and non-financial support.
  • Testing new solutions to addressing long-term or emerging social issues, particularly where people with first-hand experience of these issues are at the heart of creating the solutions.
