Applying for funding

In the UK Portfolio we are very proud of how diverse our grants have been over the past few years. We now have some new initiatives in development, so we are pausing this funding programme for a period of time. This process will take longer than anticipated as we are currently focussing on supporting our existing grant holders to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

We will continue to work with current applicants to our Climate Action Fund.

We appreciate your patience, and please watch this space for news throughout 2020. You can also check our Twitter feed for updates.
