Our Values

Our Values

Evidence Based

We collaborate with experts – funders, researchers and grantees to target our support where it can be most effective

Trust Based

We are comfortable funding non registered charities who have lived experience of the issues they address


We publish our grants to 360Giving

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

A diverse and inclusive workforce will make us a more effective grant-maker. We will measure DEI progress on our own recruitment and retention and we will report on DEI in our grant-making using 360 Giving’s DEI data standard.

Ethical Investment Strategy

Trustees regularly review investments of the Fund’s endowment against environmental, social and governance criteria. ABS has no segregated investments in oil and gas and exposure to these areas in co-mingled funds will never exceed 5% of total investments, but we aim for less than 1%.
