Our grantmaking

Shared thinking

We interact with our community every day.

As well as meeting with local charities and community groups, visiting them on site, discussing their work and ongoing needs and seeing their programmes in action, we are actively involved in the larger philanthropic world. We meet with key individuals and opinion formers in the charitable sector to keep up to date with the latest thinking and research.

Shared concerns

Working with others who share our concerns, our enthusiasm and our desire to do something about it gives the Foundation the knowledge and perspective to focus on our community’s greatest needs. We believe this collaborative approach to our work with communities is the key to achieving results.

Below are just some of the local organisations we have helped.
