- IJ Hub

Through these grants, we continue to support work across both our focus areas. They include grants on tax and corruption, tackling issues in the UK and global contexts, and new tools for accountability in the UK donor community.
We are glad to respond to the Afghanistan crisis, providing core funding to a key network. This lies in our second focus area, supporting high potential non-profits. In the same vein, we are delighted to support Irise’s international work on period poverty in the UK, Uganda & elsewhere.
