Other funding

Our budget for other grants is fully committed until 2025. We make a small number of grants each year and support organisations long-term.

What we do

Autism

We fund practical projects that support the autonomy, liberty and human rights of autistic and neurodivergent people. We prefer work that include autistic and neurodivergent people in decision-making and delivery. We will fund social skills projects. We will fund parent/carer and family support.

Disability, violence and access to justice

We support a small portfolio of projects working on Deaf and disabled people’s civic rights. We also support a small number of organisations responding to violence against autistic, neurodivergent and disabled people. We expect to add to this portfolio, using careful research and dialogue with disabled people.

What we don’t do

  • Capital projects
  • Pure research
  • Anything to do with a “cure” for autism
  • Anyone who provides residential care, even if the request is not for this
  • Anyone using Applied Behavioural Analysis or other coercive and contested methods of behavioural control
  • App and software development
  • Schools and colleges
  • Educational fees
  • Expeditions
  • Direct grants to individuals
