We, along with a wider group of funders, recognise that the impact of the Covid pandemic continues to have a significant impact on civil society groups, and want to offer renewed assurance that we stand with the sector at this time.


We wish to reassure our grant holders that we continue to aim to be as helpful and flexible as possible. 

We understand that there may be times when staff and volunteers will not be available; that services and activities may need to be delivered in different ways; that timelines may need to be adapted; and other changes may need to be made within organisations.

We have signed up to a joint funder statement coordinated by London Funders on behalf of funders working locally, regionally or nationally across the UK – see it here:

If you have received funding from the Foundation, and wish to discuss any changes or impacts on your grant, please contact your grant manager by email:

If you have recently made an application, or are in the process of applying to us – and wish to discuss anything regarding how Covid has changed your work and the request to us, please do get in touch.

Please don’t call the office – email the relevent person as above as this is the best way to contact us at present.
