Update on our strategy

Our current strategy at the LEF runs from 2020-2025, so we are in the process of developing our next strategy for 2025-2030. Below is a summary of the timeline for this process and the key points for grant applicants to be aware of.

In 2024, our Spring and Autumn grant rounds will take place as usual under our Stronger Sector and Fairer Systems funding programmes. Make sure to check our guidelines for any updates before submitting your application.

In 2025, our Spring grant round will be open for renewals for current partners only, but closed to all other applications as we prepare to announce our new strategy. Our Autumn 2025 grant round will then be open for new applications under our new strategy.

If you have any questions, please contact your LEF grant officer if you are a current grant partner, or get in touch via our website.
