Diana fund to be invitation-only

The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund is to end its open grants process in favour of inviting organisations to submit bids.

The charity outlined its new way of operating in its 2007 to 2012 strategic plan, published this week.

It will now distribute funds through organisations that meet three specific objectives: to ensure palliative care is an essential part of the treatment of people in Africa with HIV/Aids (£10m funding available); to ensure the rights of young refugees and asylum seekers in the UK are upheld (£10m); and to build on previous investments in programmes covering penal affairs, mental health, young people and landmines (£5m).

Dr Astrid Honeyman, chief executive of the fund, said: "Potential partners and projects will be assessed against their ability to deliver the objectives of the strategic plan."
