UK Aid Match II

MannionDaniels

UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.

Disability Inclusive Development Programme

UK Department for International Development

This programme will deliver a set of interventions to support people with disabilities in a number of developing countries. The programme will deliver tangible outcomes for people with disabilities including access to education, jobs, healthcare and reduced stigma and discrimination and encourage global actors to prioritise the issue. The programme will also test innovative approaches to disability inclusion and generate high quality research to fill gaps and discover what works in this under-resourced area. A lack of attention and funding has severely limited evidence of what works to deliver inclusion in international development for approximately 800 million people with disabilities in developing countries. Interventions that work will be scaled up, widening their reach, and new learning and evidence shared across the global development community and national governments.

DID consortium partners

Sightsavers

Disability inclusion is a neglected, under-prioritised issue in international development; a lack of evidence around what works in practice to deliver inclusion contributes to difficulty in building effective programmes. The DFID Disability Inclusive Development (DID) Programme is a £30m programme designed to contribute to the long-term improved well-being and inclusion of people with disabilities in low-and-middle-income countries. DID will carry out a series of small scale interventions around increased access to health care and education, improved livelihoods and reduced stigma and discrimination, using new development approaches such as adaptive management and community-based consultation to deliver better quality of life for persons with disabilities. The programme will create a solid evidence base around what delivers positive results for persons with disabilities to scale up, as well as ensure this data and evidence is disseminated and informs the global community and governments. DID will run for six years and complement DFID’s current disability inclusion programming including UK Aid Connect.
