Theory of Change

Our goal is to improve lives in London’s communities. We do this by helping to create the conditions in which London’s funders can thrive.

Our theory of change shows outcomes – from our work with funders and investors across the public, independent, social and corporate sectors, and from their work supporting civil society. Outcomes build on one another as we move towards change in Londoners’ lives. Therefore, this is also a theory of change for London’s civil society as a whole.


Civil society organisations meet the needs of Londoners

We believe that civil society organisations are best supported to meet the needs of Londoners when funding is based on knowledge of need, good funding practices, and a collaborative approach to funding that ensures resources are channeled to the right organisations. Sustainable, resilient civil society organisations, are best placed to meet the needs of Londoners.
