Our four funding priorities

Our four funding priorities give clarity to what we do and who we help. They’re routes to achieving our vision of a fairer and more equal Sussex. Through our philanthropy and impact advice we help to match our supporters’ aims with the many small, effective local charities that are supported through the funds we manage.

Our four funding priorities:

Icon to represent Tackling povertyTackling poverty

Reducing poverty and disadvantage in our communities.

Too many people across Sussex can’t afford to meet their basic needs or take part in their communities. Many find themselves on the margins of society, left behind by a lack of services or support. This route reaches grassroots charities and community groups that are tackling poverty and disadvantage.

Helping people live longer, better lives.

Our health and wellbeing are fundamental to our lives. But too many people across Sussex don’t get the support they need. This route addresses that gap, by supporting organisations that positively impact local people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Providing life-changing skills, education and training.

There is so much untapped potential in Sussex, often among people who face real barriers to their progress. This route addresses that, by reaching and supporting local organisations that build people’s skills, confidence and opportunities.

Taking local action for the climate

The climate emergency is a global one. But the effects are local, and many of the solutions are too. This route helps us reach all those in our communities who are both affected by, and taking positive and proactive action on, the climate, nature and biodiversity.
