Following a successful pilot last year, our Wee Grants is now a permanent funding offer. The pilot reached a new audience of small charities and constituted community groups – we know the important work that these organisations do in their communities and we wanted to continue to support them.

For more details of the kind of work we fund, take a look at Who and what we fund.
