DEADLINE:
25TH JANUARY 2024

The Lloyds Bank Foundation is inviting applications to its Specialist Programme to support small and grassroots organisations across England and Wales. This offers 3-year unrestricted grants of up to £75,000 to strengthen the capacity of registered charities in England and Wales. The South West is one of the priorities for 2024 since the region received less funding compared to other areas last year. It is only open to Charities and Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) with a turnover of £25,000 to £500,000 provided they are carrying out work which fits in with one of the fund’s priorities:

 

  • Addiction
  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Care leavers
  • Domestic abuse
  • Homelessness
  • Offending
  • Sexual abuse and exploitation
  • Trafficking and modern slavery

 

The funding is for organisations supporting people (18 years and older) who are experiencing complex social issues resulting in a significant impact on their lives. As ‘specialist organisations’, applicants need to demonstrate that: they are providing in-depth services rather than short-term or one-off support; have trusted relationships with other providers; and that they provide person-centred services and personal plans.

 

Grants can be used to support any costs which further the charity’s purpose, including core costs. Grant recipients can also access a range of other support to help strengthen the performance and resilience of their organisation.

 

Lloyds Bank Foundation delivered a webinar on 9 November 2023 for organisations interested in applying. Lloyds Bank Foundation also provide one-to-one advice for applicants. Contact Steven Chown if you require further links provided at the webinar or are interested in applying – email [email protected]

 

Deadline: Thursday 25th January 2024
