We seek to support people most marginalised and excluded by society
We aim to build respectful and mutually beneficial relationships with the people we work with
We are committed to learn from our grant-making to inform future practice
We maintain high standards of administrative efficiency and cost effectiveness
We work closely with others concerned with equity and justice for the most marginalised groups, recognising that we can do more together than we can on our own.
Listening and building relationships is fundamental to our approach, as is being aware of how we fit in the ‘ecosystem’ of charities, funders, and civil society more broadly. We want to know that our funding adds value given what others are doing, so that we achieve the best we possibly can for the organisations and people we seek to support.
We aim to support organisations who learn from their work and respect the agency and talents of the people they work with, putting their interests front and centre.
A big thank you to everyone who took part in our review. The environment is more challenging than ever for those working to uphold human rights. As we are growing as a trust, we reviewed our strategy, learning from external feedback on our work and how we might improve.
We started by commissioning nfpResearch to do an anonymous perceptions survey of both successful and unsuccessful applicants. See the report and a summary of our reflections and actions.
