We want to fund good ideas that meet at least two of our values. You must demonstrate this in your application.

Our values are:

  • Inclusion

We listen to other points of view, learn from best practice and engage with our customers and communities as we recognise we are stronger and can contribute more if we have shared goals and collective efforts

  • Respect

We value our staff and customers and empower them in a positive way to participate, to adapt and to be inspired to take ownership and make positive change

  • Excellence

We are ambitious for what our organisation and customers can achieve and strive to deliver the highest quality and value possible

  • Innovation

We look for new ways of solving problems, strive for continuous reflection and improvement and promote others to do the same.
