Place-based funding

Helping funders to understand the why, what and how of place-based funding.

Introduction

The ‘working in place’ framework supports funders with the planning and implementation of place-based approaches.

What is it?

The framework is simply a way of organising a conversation when planning or reviewing place-based work. It can: help to bring to the surface assumptions and different opinions when working with multiple partners; provide a structure or checklist for use when planning an approach or reflecting on progress; support the sharing of thinking and improving transparency.

Who is it for?

It will be most useful for staff and trustees of trusts and foundations who have responsibility for making strategic decisions about funding approaches or who are leading the delivery of a place-based programme.
