About the Shared Ground Fund
The Shared Ground Fund supports organisations to explore opportunities and address challenges in the area of migration and integration. We provide funding to organisations that contributes towards ensuring that young people who migrate can thrive and work which helps communities experiencing migration become stronger and more connected.
Before we paused new applications in April 2020, we offered two types of grant funding:
- ‘Explore and Test’ grants supported new approaches and ways of addressing new challenges. The maximum award was £60,000, usually for up to two years.
- ‘More and Better’ grants were longer-term, larger grants to help develop and embed established activities. Most grants were in the range of £100,000–£300,000.
We also commission work that addresses knowledge gaps, or improves the ability of grantees to achieve change. We aim to ensure that knowledge, data and learning about these issues and any solutions generated are shared with a wide range of allies and those in power.
We are currently reviewing our application forms and processes ahead of re-opening our funds in October. Further information will be available shortly.
