We’re pleased to announce that we have added our name to the growing list of funders who are pledging their support in response to the crisis.
While we had already recognised that we needed to change how we were funding, as well as relaxing the conditions on grants that we had already committed to, it is wonderful to see so many other funders also stepping up to provide support.
It is our hope that, through this, we will see long-lasting changes to the way funding is done in the UK. To us, the changes that funders are making now show that it is possible: to do things differently; to simplify funding; to trust that communities know what they need; and to have that trust rewarded.
You can read the Covid-19 statement from us here. The statement can also be found in full, along with a list of signatories at the website which has been specially set up to hold news and updates pertaining to the group.
