Our values reflect how we work.
We are a responsive funder, listening and responding to what applicants judge is important.
We have developed funding guidelines, enabling us to be discerning in our decisions about whom and what to support.
We value our relationships and seek to have a personal touch. Our Trustees are involved at every stage of an application, and we always visit or meet an applicant before a grant is made.
We prefer to be connected and are in regular contact with relevant colleagues and partners in the charitable world. We also like to keep in touch with grantees, convening and linking with them and others from time to time.
We are willing to be flexible, and may venture outside our funding criteria if we believe a different approach would be more effective.
