Grant Making Priorities and Principles
What we fund
Work which delivers against our core priorities:
  • Tackling poverty and disadvantage
  • Improving mental health and wellbeing
  • Stronger communities
  • Developing education, skills and employment
In 2023-24, we are focused on:
  • Reducing the impact of disadvantage in Cheshire and Warrington, particularly with a view to funding longer-term work in communities where change takes time and resource over many years.
We recognise that;
  • multi-year funding which helps VCFS organisations to take a longer view, embed work more effectively and plan for their sustainable future is one of the single most important things that we can consider as a funder. We’re keen to do more work of this kind
  • smaller, shorter-term grant-making remains crucial to support responsive, grassroots projects.
