Bespoke programmes

Concern works directly with a select group of trusts and foundations to deliver bespoke programmes, designed and chosen to meet each trust’s needs and priorities.

These can range from small-scale pilot projects to test innovative new approaches, to comprehensive programmes that take a multi-pronged approach to tackling extreme poverty. Bespoke programmes allow trusts to support the work that matters the most to them.
