UK Aid Match II.
Supporting UKAid Match, a 5-year, £150 million programme, currently changing the lives of over 3 million of the world’s poorest people with UK aid from the UK Government.
UK Aid Match is funded from the international development budget, for donations made by individuals living in the UK. The first phase of UK Aid Match, launched between 2013 and 2016, funded 59 appeals run by civil society organisations (CSOs). In Jan 2017, The Social Change Agency was selected along with MannionDaniels and four other consortium partners to support the next iteration of UK Aid Match.
Over the next five years, we are aiming to support 100s more CSO’s through the fund. Through working with Mannon Daniels and DifD, we will be providing communication, programme and alternative fundraising support to international aid charities across Britain.
From June 2017 to May 2019 we will run a comprehensive research programme with the international development sector to help improve the communication communication component of UK Aid Match; looking at the levers of change around the fund, alongside narrative change, support for small CSO’s and digital, schools and peer to peer fundraising.
The second round of Uk Aid Match opened in April 2018 with 24 CSO’s awarded the fund. We are currently supporting them with their fundraising communication around their appeals. The third round opened on the 22 of Oct and can be found here.
