Grants are available in four programme areas

Arts & Heritage programme: Until mid-2008 they will focus primarily on the contemporary visual arts including crafts, design, fine art, new media, photography and sculpture. The heritage programme aims to preserve and provide public access to our national heritage, particularly outside Greater London.

The Foundation’s Education programme covers two broad areas of interest: New approaches to education and Hard-to-reach learners. They look to support imaginative and flexible approaches to learning that are unlikely to be funded through statutory education sources.

The Environment programme wishes to promote environmental improvements which balance the needs of people and wildlife.

The Social Change: Enterprise and Independence programme aims to enable people and communities facing disadvantage to improve their lives and prioritizes those at greatest need.

Funding is available between £300 and £600,000

Grants may be for one year or for up to three years. Decisions on grants of £20,000 and under will be made within two months of receiving an application, with decisions on grants over £20,000 made within five months.
