The Department for International Development has confirmed the latest £20 million round of UK Aid Match will open on 22 October 2018.

The UK Aid Match funding round will encourage wildlife and conservation charities to apply for funds for projects that tackle wildlife crime and deforestation – and so reduce poverty in the world’s poorest communities. It also invites applications from charities working to achieve sustained poverty reduction and to achieve the Global Goals.

Making the announcement on Thursday, 11 October International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said:

“UK Aid Match gives the British public a chance to see the money they donate to their most passionate development causes matched pound-for-pound by the government.

“We owe it to future generations for UK aid to work alongside some of our most innovative and hard-working charities to tackle the scourge of the Illegal Wildlife Trade and protect our natural environment. I want to encourage our partners to look to UK Aid Match as a way of furthering their efforts to do this and connecting with the British public.

“To do so is a win for the public; a win for the world’s poorest people; and a win for wildlife.”

UK Aid Match will match fund up to £2m in donations made by the public to appeals developed to reduce poverty in some of the world’s poorest and most fragile countries. It brings charities, the public and the UK government together to change the lives of people living in poverty and gives British people an opportunity to have their say about how the UK’s aid is spent.

To date UK Aid Match has supported 42 charities, working on 84 projects in 27 countries, to help more than 25 million people.

Applications open on 22 October 2018, but there’s guidance available on the UK Aid Match website now 

UK Aid Match is a government project run by the Department for International Development. The Fund Manager for UK Aid Match is MannionDaniels, working in consortium with Oxford Policy Management (OPM), Education Development Trust (EDT), Royal Tropical Institute (KIT), and the Social Change Agency (SCA).

MannionDaniels has developed an organisational capacity assessment tool (OCAT) that is used to identify the extent of a health management team’s organisational capacity to support health systems.

This diagnostic is accompanied by the development of a targeted capacity development plan to address identified capacity gaps. The assessment is conducted on an annual basis.

The baseline for the Maternal Newborn and Child Health Programme (MNCH2) was gathered in 2015 and the accompanying poster reveals the progress achieved in 2016.
