Our ambition now, and forever, is to #DoMoreLocal.

Working with our donors, we award money to local community organisations supporting a variety of themes. We know local people have the talents, skills and knowledge to tackle the issues affecting their communities. We have the expertise to work alongside them, providing vital investment to make positive change a reality, leading to healthier and happier communities.

We want to hear from your community group! On this page we’ll be sharing your #DoMoreLocal stories!

Get Involved:

We want to know how your group supports your local community and how funding from the Foundation has enabled that. These stories will feature here, our marketing channels, including our #DoMoreLocal Newsletter.

Share your your stories, case studies, statistics, videos, photos etc with us on Social Media, remember to tag us and use #DoMoreLocal.
