We encourage innovation and coalition-building in civil society organisations (CSOs) through our grants. Our grants have a particular focus on work benefitting women, marginalised and under-served people, and overlooked development issues.

Grants will launch in April 2019

The next round CSSP2 grants will start end of April 2019. You will be able to find information about these grants and how to apply for them on this page.


Between October 2018 and February 2019, we disbursed strategic grants with a total value of £843,949, out of a total contracted amount of  £1,687,898, to 30 organisations.
