There are many ways in which poverty and inequality can be addressed, though we do not have sufficient resources to support all needs. Our focus is on four areas: Employment, Advice, Social Justice and Violence. We also have a specific programme for small groups. We fund voluntary and community organisations undertaking charitable activities, though you do not need to be a registered charity to apply.
To find out more about our priorities please read our funding guidelines, which can be viewed below or are available to download
Easy Read Guidelines are also available.
