Get in touch

We are very receptive to new ideas, wherever they come from. This aligns with two of our core principles to ‘be open’, and ‘learn by doing’. To gather new ideas we have created an ideas funnel allowing interested parties to contribute ideas that align with where we want to get to.


We’re pleased to see that our website and social media activity, ongoing stakeholder engagement, participating in and attending events, and promoting our publications and those of our collaborators, are starting to building awareness of and interest in the Resilience Shift. To date we have been working with a wide range of grantees on projects, events and investments large and small and we are very open to collaboration.

If you’ve got an idea for improving critical infrastructure resilience and would like to talk to us about it, then please get in touch by email at [email protected] or complete the form below.

From idea to reality

Our decision-driven process for ideas sets out how and why we move an idea through to a candidate project or investment. Our leadership team will continuously check and challenge what we’re doing to ensure that it is the right thing to do, that we know why we are doing it, and for whom, and that all stakeholders have a clear definition of success.

From us receiving an idea to being in a position to award grants, the following steps are taken:

  1. We receive the idea
  2. We move it forward and manage as a lead
  3. We move forward and scope as an opportunity
  4. Finally, we award and deliver as a project or investment

Submit your idea

Our programme is not fixed and we are constantly on the lookout for great ideas that support our aims for critical infrastructure resilience. In some cases we may be able to provide funding to help us jointly realise these ideas.

If you’d like to get in touch and suggest an idea, please complete and submit the below form.
