Paul Hamlyn Foundation: Shared Ground Fund

Education & Employment Health & Social Care

Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Shared Ground Fund makes grants of between £30,000 and £400,000 (typically between £60,000 and £250,000) for work lasting between 12 months and four years with an option to extend for a further period to organisations working towards the following long-term objectives:

  • Influencing migration system reform: helping to build a policy and legal framework based on the principles of fairness, accessibility, due process, efficiency and respect for human rights.
  • Improving access to support services, to ensure systemic exclusion which forces individuals into poverty is addressed and the needs of people who migrate are met, so that they have the longer-term support they need to settle, integrate and thrive in the UK.
  • Strengthening civic participation so that people who have migrated to the UK have a stronger voice and are represented and meaningfully involved in the structures and services that affect their lives.
  • Informing public understanding and countering the polarisation of migration and integration narratives.

The Foundation wants to support work that addresses racism and structural inequalities that result in different groups being adversely affected in the UK migration system. They will only fund work that directly influences or contributes towards wider systemic change and that addresses root causes alongside consequences.

They also have a particular interest in the lives of young people who lack permanent status in the UK, including those who are ‘undocumented’ and maintain an area of focus on these young people within the Shared Ground Fund, working in partnership with Unbound Philanthropy. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Foundation at undoc@phf.org.uk to discuss their ideas before submitting an application relating to this focus area.

The Foundation is particularly interested in, and will prioritise work that takes place outside of London and work that is led by people with direct experience of the UK immigration system (with a majority on the leadership and governance of an organisation).

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
