As a registered charity, NPC relies on the generosity of our supporters to continue our work to transform the charity sector.

Support our work

Together we can make a bigger difference

As a registered charity and think tank, NPC relies on the generous support of funders and philanthropists, partners and the public to build a strong, effective and impactful social sector. 

NPC builds that strength, encourages better practice and imagines new approaches for the sector to take.​

We work with charities and funders to find solutions to the social challenges they seek to tackle and help them amplify their impact. We create change by working with charities to improve their practice, influence government and innovate new solutions to problems.

As we move from one crisis to another, we can’t predict the future or what challenges will come next, but we can continue working to develop, test and share evidence-driven tools for all. Impact matters, and it matters most of all to the people charities serve.

I helped set up NPC because I knew there were other donors passionate about generating a social return with their donations.

Current programmes

If you would like to support a specific area of NPC’s work, below is an overview of our current priorities. Please contact Helen Osment, Head of Fundraising, if you would like to know more.  

You can also sign up to our monthly fundraising newsletter. 

Youth mental health is in the midst of an unprecedented and deepening crisis. NPC is developing an ambitious five-year programme of work to bring the social sector together to help change the face of youth mental health support in the UK. Our vision is for every young person to be able to access the support that they need, in the way that they need it, when they need it. Find out more about our work in this area.

Open Philanthropy is transitioning from its first pilot stage to scale, where we build on what the brilliant insights we’ve gained so far in this innovative programme and help move these findings towards real impact. We are seeking funding partners who want to be part of this ambitious experiment in opening up philanthropy. Their investment will be distributed as part of the grant-making aspect of the programme, as well as support the innovation and learning of the programme itself. Find out more about our Open Philanthropy Programme.

Everyone’s Environment empowers people from the UK’s diverse social groups to have a say in how we confront the climate and nature crises. We are one of the few organisations raising awareness of the intersection between social and environmental issues – there is a lot of work to do in this space and we’re excited to lead the way. Join us! Find our more about Everyone’s Environment. 

Data and digital infrastructure. We aim to reduce administrative burdens to free up people’s capacity for more important work. We are developing digital products and harnessing the potential of open data with funders, philanthropists and frontline charities as end users, to help achieve this aim. Find out more about our work in this area. 

Influencing the political environment for charities to succeed is our bread and butter as a think tank. In the lead up to and after the general election, we will be working to influence both parties to ensure that whoever is in government partners with charities and funders to tackle social issues and the climate crisis.  Find out more about our influencing work.

I don't think there's anyone quite like NPC. It plays across a number of different markets, which can be a great strength.
