Our Open Fund partners - the difference they're making

In March 2020, we announced three year partnerships with these six local and inspiring charities, awarding unrestricted, multi-year grants over three years totalling £530,000.  We also formed a one year partnership with Home-Start Lambeth. You can read about these charities and their stories in these boxes below.

Here's what two partners said about receiving an unrestricted, multi-year grant from Peter Minet Trust: 

''Our partnership with Peter Minet is exactly that - a partnership.  We feel able to be completely honest with them about challenges as well as triumphs.  The funding is truly unrestricted and we feel trusted to make the right decisions for our members.  This kind of relationship with a funder is rare and really valued by all at Westminster House.' - Katie Worthington, Westminster House Youth Club

The unrestricted multi year funding has given us security as well as flexibility.  This was most keenly demonstrated in 2020 when we were able to respond immediately and redesign our service provision in the face of the pandemic. Our plans and delivery were celebrated by the trust - and at a time when we could have felt so isolated - I was very grateful for the supportive conversations from the director and the trustees throughout the year. As a small, locally focused charity it is really helpful to work with a funder that is also rooted in the area. I greatly appreciate the support, enthusiasm and genuine interest in our activities, service users and staff. '- Catriona Finlayson, Stepping Stones
