We may occasionally fund work to tackle poverty and inequality which falls outside our funding programmes.
Organisations will need to demonstrate clearly how the work is exceptional or how your organisation is developing genuinely innovative approaches to address these issues; or that an exceptional need has arisen. You will need to speak to us if you wish to apply under this heading. Generally we will only make a few grants under this category each year.
