Tudor makes grants, and provides other types of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. We particularly want to help smaller, community-led organisations which work directly with people who are at the margins of society: organisations which support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities. We want to respond flexibly to your ideas and energy, and to fund effective organisations working to high standards.
Tudor doesn’t have specific funding programmes. Our focus is on smaller forward-looking groups, led by capable and committed people. Some of the other characteristics we are looking for include:

  • Organisations working directly with people who are at the margins of society
  • A focus on building stronger communities by overcoming isolation and fragmentation and encouraging inclusion, connection and integration
  • Organisations which are embedded in and have developed out of their community – whether the local area or a ‘community of interest’
  • High levels of user involvement, and an emphasis on self-help where this is appropriate
  • Work which addresses complex and multi-stranded problems in unusual or imaginative ways
  • Organisations which are thoughtful in their use of resources and which foster community resilience in the face of environmental, economic or social change
  • They will not fund schools

We are more likely to fund groups with an annual turnover of less than £1 million.
However, we sometimes make grants to larger groups, particularly for work which could be influential or which a smaller organisation would not have the capacity to deliver. Please call us on 020 7727 8522 if you are from a larger organisation and would like to discuss making an application.
