    Our Growing Great Ideas programme has a focus on supporting transformational and long-term change.

    Area
    UK-wide
    Suitable for
    We’re looking to invest in different compositions of people, communities, networks and organisations over the long term. They might be better described as ecologies, platforms, ecosystems, assemblages, networks and constellations - we’re using different words because at this stage of the funding programme, we’re still testing an approach. We’re also using language to be explicit about how this is different from what we’ve done before. The important thing is that we can see the potential in how they will grow and deepen over time, extending their missions, and adding to the ecology as they go.
    Funding size
    The minimum grant size is £150,000. The minimum length is two years. Funding can be available for up to ten years in some circumstances.
    Total available
    We expect to have a total of £25 million available for this programme until March 2022. And more funding beyond that.
