Our impact

We directly support communities across the whole ceremonial county of Shropshire, helping them to thrive by championing local organisations, connecting them to donors, and channelling funds to them.

We are constantly developing our knowledge and understanding of the funding priorities in Shropshire by working in collaboration with public sector partners and key expert stakeholders, and then sharing their insights with our donors and supporters.

Our grants programmes are both geographic and thematic, targeting the most pressing challenges and issues in our county. By supporting the county’s organisations to tackle complex issues, we can achieve improved quality of life for so many in Shropshire.

Our work has tangible improved outcomes for the direct beneficiaries, but also translates into positive changes right across our communities – meaning we can ensure a lasting social impact
