Shared Ground by Paul Hamlyn Foundation #589104
The Shared Ground Fund will provide organisations with the financial support they need to test new approaches, explore ways of exploiting emerging opportunities and address new challenges in this area of great change and uncertainty. It will also support organisations with an already strong track record of achievement with substantial help to achieve a greater impact.
Applicants must contribute to one of the following aims of the Shared Ground Fund:
- Staying safe – ensuring that young people who have migrated can address the significant barriers that affect their ability to thrive
- Living well together – supporting work which helps communities experiencing high levels of migration become stronger and more connected
The Shared Ground Fund offers two kinds of grants to support organisations at different stages of development:
- Shared Ground ‘explore and test’ grants – each year the funder expects to make around 10 grants to help explore and test new approaches and ways of addressing new challenges (awards will be for a maximum of £60,000, usually for up to two years)
- Shared Ground ‘more and better’ grants – each year the funder expects to make around 10 longer, larger grants to help develop and embed more established activities (awards will be for between £100,000 and £400,000 for up to four years). They expect most grants to be in the range of £100,000 – £250,000. Larger grants will be considered on an exceptional basis and usually by invitation.

Children and Young People by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation #589098
The Foundation aims to improve the quality of life for people throughout the UK by supporting work that focuses on the arts, children and young people, the environment, food and social change. Applicants should apply for the amount that they need. The Foundation does not set limits and makes grants across a fairly wide spectrum of sizes. However, the Foundation rarely makes grants that are smaller than £5,000 and it makes only a small number of grants in excess of £500,000. It is unusual for the Foundation to give a grant of this size or larger to an organisation with which it does not already have a relationship. Funding is available for core or project costs, and this includes staff salaries and overheads.
