Meet the Team
UK Community Foundations is the UK’s largest independent community charitable grant-maker.
UK Community Foundations was chosen by Big Lottery Fund (previously New Opportunities Fund & Community Fund) to manage the Fair Share Trust nationally. We appointed locally based partners, or Fair Share Trust ‘local agents,’ to deliver the programme locally. They were chosen because of their experience in making grants and local knowledge of and connections with the area.
There are currently 29 Fair Share Trust local agents with responsibility for managing the programme and making grants in 80 Fair Share Trust neighbourhoods. The decision whether or not to fund a project is made by local agents working with local panels, with local agents taking the legal responsibility. UK Community Foundations does not make Fair Share Trust grant decisions or awards.
If you have any queries about how the programme is operating in your area, about applying for funding or applying to be on the local panel, you should contact the Fair Share Trust local agent. To find a Fair Share Trust local agent, visit the Find a Local Agent section. If you have any questions about the programme as a whole, please contact the Fair Share Trust team at UK Community Foundations. The Fair Share Trust team is
