Strategic Funding Framework 2019–2024

  • will introduce a streamlined grant-making portfolio
  • increasingly focus on wellbeing, capacity-building and innovation (both nationally and internationally), amongst others
  • explore the use of social investment
  • commit to increased devolution in our decision-making
