Other areas of work
Here you can find information about specific projects, partnerships or pieces of work which lie outside our normal grant making.
The Community Land Trust Fund
The Community Land Trust Fund supports fledgling Community Land Trust projects by providing both funding and expert support. Community Land Trusts (CLTs) seek to address local housing need by creating affordable housing and community resources through the co-operative ownership of land by the local community. Tudor is one of the funders of the Community Land Trust Fund, alongside the Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation, the Nationwide Foundation and CAF Venturesome. You can download a leaflet about the Community Land Trust Fund here.
Tudor’s Africa Group
Tudor’s reactive grant making focuses solely on work within the UK, but we do also work proactively in sub-Saharan Africa. A small group of trustees and staff has, for some years, been developing a programme of support for projects promoting sustainable agriculture. This group is assisted by a consultant based in Zimbabwe.
As part of this programme about 30 organisations based in Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe receive a variety of strategic support including grants towards core running costs, capacity building grants, funding for exchange visits within Africa and in some cases, capital grants to build infrastructure. Currently the group is focusing on building a stronger sustainable agriculture network through resourcing centres of good practice and farmer- to-farmer learning.
We do not accept unsolicited applications from groups working in sub-Saharan Africa.
The Tudor LankellyChase South West Partnership (TLC)
The Tudor LankellyChase South West Partnership brought together trustees and staff from the Tudor Trust and the LankellyChase Foundation with the aim of strengthening the capacity of voluntary sector groups working in the criminal justice field in the South West of England. Over its lifetime the partnership made grants totalling more than £2.7 million. The final meeting of this five year partnership took place on 23 March 2010: at this meeting the members of the partnership commissioned an external review to assess whether the partnership has met its original objectives, despite significant challenges, and whether working together in this way has been effective and a good use of resources.
