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.


Collaboration partners continually learn and use their learning to improve

We believe that effective collaboration to influence systems that affect Londoners’ lives can for part of a virtuous cycle of collaboration. If collaborating funders seek to continually learn from experiences, share knowledge and foster continued improvement,they will be better able to use collaboration to strategically identify and respond to priority issues.
