Shared Ground Fund

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 contribute to one of the following aims:

  • Staying safe– ensuring that young people who have migrated can address the significant barriers that affect their ability to thrive.
  • Living well together– supporting work which helps communities experiencing migration become stronger and more connected.

We provide two types of grant funding:

  • ‘Explore and Test’grants support new approaches and ways of addressing new challenges. The maximum award is £60,000, usually for up to two years.
  • ‘More and Better’grants are longer-term, larger grants to help develop and embed established activities. We expect most grants to be in the range of £100,000 – £300,000. Larger grants of up to £400,000 will be considered on an exceptional basis and usually by invitation.

We will 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 is generated and shared with a wide range of allies and those in power.
