We are delighted to reopen our small grant programme for applications from UK registered not-for-profit organisations. We are interested in considering funding applications for projects that would benefit a diverse group or community. We are also keen to support projects in deprived communities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Thanks to the customers of Waitrose Duchy Organic, we continue to deliver on our commitment to promote Good Food, Good Farming and Good Causes, by supporting Innovative Farmers (part of the Duchy Futures Farming Programme) which includes a new study into the future of agroforestry in the UK. In particular, it investigates whether agroforestry could be a viable way to protect farmland and continue to farm sustainably through the climate crisis.
Our small grant programme will re-open this summer. We will seek to prioritise available grant funding to support those organisations that are delivering projects in communities severely impacted by the pandemic.
Please re-visit our website for further updates on our small grant programme and specific re-opening date. In the meantime, please contact us if you have an urgent query.
