Their preference is for front line organisations working directly with people in need. They do not  support campaigning, organisational development or capacity building.  They will consider new work if it is a logical extension of existing work, but do not support work which represents  a significant shift away from your existing core aims and experience.

Successful applicants can re-apply for a further two years. No further applications can be made after the completion of the third grant.
