Funding is available for capital costs. This means tangible items or work, including: Buildings – purchase, construction, renovation and/or refurbishment. Fittings, fixtures, and equipment – this includes but is not limited to office equipment/furniture, sports/gym equipment, digital/audio visual equipment, software and websites, garden equipment, specialist therapeutic (excluding medical) equipment. Vehicles – minibus, car, caravan, people-carrier, 4X4. The Foundation is unlikely to fund the total cost of a new vehicle.
For larger projects (£100,000+), the Foundation generally funds 10% or more of the balance to be raised. For example, if the project cost was £200,000 and the applicant had £150,000 left to raise, the grant award would be at least £15,000. The larger a project, the larger the grant is likely to be. For smaller projects (with a balance of less than £10,000), the Foundation generally funds between 50% and 100% of the balance.
The Foundation awards grants in the following areas: people affected by drug and/or alcohol misuse, and their families; people with disabilities; disadvantaged minority communities, disadvantaged young people; projects supporting people affected by domestic or sexual abuse; older people, homelessness, prisoners and ex-offenders- projects supporting prisoners and/or ex-offenders and projects providing services for blind or visually impaired people.
