The FCDO is currently finalising its spending plans for the next three financial years, including plans for future central funding to civil society. We will take into consideration our support to small and medium-sized charities in the delivery of UK aid. Despite the challenging financial climate as a result of COVID-19, FCDO protected funding this year to the 55 Small Charities Challenge Fund projects which were under implementation. This includes five grants to support the capacity development of small UK charities.
