Lloyds Bank Foundation Relaunches Grants Programme (England & Wales)
Charities in England and Wales with an income of between £25,000 and £1million that are tackling complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse can now apply for core funding grants worth up to £100,000. The funding is part of the Lloyds Bank Foundations relaunched grants programme which now has a simpler and more flexible approach. Grants are available of up to £100,000 and are available over three years (with the possibility of continuing to six years) and can be used entirely for core costs. Core costs are overhead costs of an organisation, as opposed to those specific to a project; with charities able to flex how much they spend each year. Applications can be submitted at any time.
Greggs Foundation Local Community Projects Fund (England, Scotland & Wales)
Not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of up to £2,000 for projects working to reduce disadvantage experienced by the most deprived people in the community such as the disabled, those living in poverty, voluntary carers and isolated older people. Larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 are unlikely to be successful with those located near to a Greggs shop most likely to receive awards. The funding is being made available through the Greggs Foundation Local Community Projects Fund. The closing date for applications is the 23rd February 2020.
