Following a review of their grant making The Henry Smith Charity has launched a new strategy for the Main Grants Programme. While there are some changes, the main focus remains on funding organisations that bring about lasting change in people’s lives helping them to benefit from and contribute to society. They want to work with people for whom other sources of support have failed, been inappropriate or are simply not available.
There are two programmes under the new Main Grants Strategy – Improving Lives and Strengthening Communities. Improving Lives focuses on organisations achieving specific results under clearly identified priority areas while Strengthening Communities looks at supporting small organisations doing community based work in the most deprived areas of the UK.
