Funding Opportunity – Shared Ground Fund (UK)
Shared Ground Fund (UK)
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has launched a new programme that makes grants to not-for-profit organisations that work with young people, and/or work that seeks to influence relevant policy or practice in immigration.
The “Shared Ground” programme will provide financial support for projects to test new approaches and explore ways of addressing new challenges. Applications must contribute to one or both aims of the Shared Ground Fund. These are:
• “Living well together” – supporting work which helps communities experiencing high levels of migration become stronger and more connected
• “Staying safe” – ensuring that young migrants in greatest need can get help and support.
There are two kinds of grants available:
• Shared Ground ‘explore and test’ grants – to help explore and test new approaches and ways of addressing new issues (awards will be for a maximum of £60,000, usually for up to two years).
• Shared Ground ‘more and better’ grants – 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).
The explore and test grants are open to applications now and they are accepted on a rolling basis.
