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 influence systems to meet needs of Londoners

We believe that collaborative initiatives, such as the Vision for Young London, by creating a unified voice that is effectively directed at policymakers who can bring about real change, have the potential to improve the systems within which London’s civil society operates. We have seen from the Keep the Safety Net campaign that policies can be changed through funders collaborating in this way.
