About the program

About the program
Most grant recipients are charitable civil society organizations in the UK, including many which have international interests.
Grants are £50 thousand to £100 thousand per year for major projects of three to six years. Most grants are smaller, normally under £15 thousand (“pools”) and under £6 thousand (“fast-track”).
However, the Network is willing to receive project ideas from outside of its membership. For this purpose, the Network operates a Project Noticeboard. Individuals use an online form to submit brief details of any project for the Network’s attention.
