Our General Fund grants support the capacity building of charities working in environmental and human health in line with the UN Sustainability goals for 2020.  The purpose of these grants is to develop charities’ systems, strategies or people and skills to deliver improved outcomes for our community. Typically, capacity building focuses on education and training, recruiting, maintaining or recognising volunteers, information technology support systems, staff training, planning and governance which may include strategic plans, constitution reviews or board appraisals.
