Paul Hamlyn Foundation - Shared Ground programme
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation's Shared Ground programme will fund work that supports communities to live well together and thrive, work that exploits the opportunities of migration, and work that addresses challenges for people who have migrated, including those who are ‘undocumented’, or have irregular immigration status.
It 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.
Who can apply?
Not-for-profit organisations, of any size and working anywhere in the UK, can apply to this fund. Applicants must contribute to one of the following aims: staying safe (i.e ensuring that young people who have migrated can address the significant barriers that affect their ability to thrive) or living well together (i.e supporting work which helps communities experiencing high levels of migration become stronger and more connected).
The application form and guidance can be found on Foundation's website. Organisations can apply for an ‘explore and test’ grant to help explore and test new approaches and ways of addressing new challenges (maximum of £60,000, usually for up to two years) or a ‘more and better’ grant to help develop and embed more established activities (between £100,000 and £400,000 for up to four years).
