What we fund
The Linbury Trust funds a wide variety of work including core costs, specific projects and we occasionally contribute to capital schemes.
Our focus is public engagement with culture, including arts, dance, museums, and heritage, especially when this has benefits such as improved quality of life. We also support work that improves the choices of people experiencing disadvantage and inequality, including homelessness, and refugees and asylum seekers.
We fund work and projects that helps older people to live well, especially those experiencing isolation and complex health needs.
We help projects that support the environment and climate, and connect people with nature; we also occasionally support work overseas, especially emergency relief.
We publish open grants data. To find out more about what we fund, please visit 360 Giving.
The Linbury Trust does not accept enquiries or applications. We appreciate that a highly competitive open application process can be time consuming for the organisation applying. Through partnership work and research, we identify organisations we want to work with. We aim to be more conversational than transactional and we invite applications for projects we are interested in supporting. The Linbury Trust has a small and dedicated staff team, and our Trustees meet 4-5 times per year to take the final decisions on which projects to support.
