Since the foundation paused new applications in April, it has been working hard focusing its effort and resources to ensure grantees and the communities they work with can survive the impact of the pandemic. It has now reopened its UK funds, with some changes to criteria and processes that reflect what has worked well over the last few months, with more flexibility and better responsiveness to applicants.
- Access and participation: addresses inequalities of opportunity to access and participate in the arts. £30,000 – £400,000, lasting between 12 months and four years.
- Arts-based learning: supports work that enables pupils in formal education settings, particularly those experiencing systemic inequality or disadvantage, to thrive through engagement with high quality, arts-based learning. £30,000 – £400,000 for up to three years.
- Shared ground: supports organisations to influence migration system reform, improve access to support services, strengthen civic participation and inform public understanding of migration and integration narratives. £30,000 – £400,000 for work lasting up to four years.
- Youth fund: supports organisations whose main purpose is working with and for young people (aged 14 to 25) who face complex transitions to adulthood. Core funding grants up to £90,000 over three years.
- Ideas and pioneers: supports people with a vision of a better society, helping them to explore the potential of their ideas for change. Up to £15,000.
