  • Need


    Our grant making addresses many local problems and supports those projects that are tackling them head on at a very local level.


    By supporting the projects that are an identified need and are run by local people for their communities we can target the funding so that every penny makes an impact. Many of this projects really make a difference but can fall under the 'radar'of larger, national funders.
