Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation


The Foundation supports projects that seek to influence values and attitudes, promote equity and social justice, and develop radical alternatives to current economic and social structures.

The main priorities are;

  • Peace and sustainable security: work that addresses the underlying causes of violent conflict and the development of ways to prevent and resolve conflict
  • Environmental sustainability: work that addresses the pressures and conditions that contribute to global environmental breakdown.

They only support practical projects when they are clearly of a pioneering nature, with potential for influencing UK national policy.
