Our Impact
Funding from our donors enables us to support many thousands of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our communities. In 2020 alone, the grants we made reached over 196,000 people in Cheshire and Warrington

In order to achieve lasting solutions for the most pressing challenges and problems of our local communities, we aim constantly to develop our knowledge and understanding of the funding priorities in Cheshire And Warrington. With the use of tools like Local Insight and collaboration with public sector partners and key expert stakeholders we are constantly updating our understanding of the need and sharing this insight with our donors.

Our grants programmes are both geographic and thematic, targeting often hidden pockets of deprivation and need.
