- Consortium is delighted to have awarded £20,000 to LGBT+ organisations thanks to generous funding from a private donor.
- 20 LGBT+ organisations across the country received funding.
- Funds were awarded to user-led organisations working with diverse range of LGBT+ people of faith.
Consortium, the UKs umbrella body for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender + organisations has announced a list of the successful recipients from its latest grants programme, the LGBT+ Futures: Faith Fund.
20 LGBT+ organisations across the country shared funding of £20,000, which has now been fully distributed.
Grants ranged from £500 to £1,750 to support the delivery of core activities of LGBT+ non-profit groups, organisations and projects that are led by and for LGBT+ people of faith.
The programme of grants was made possible thanks to the donation of a private donor. A grants committee of community representatives agreed the grants, focusing on supporting the overall work of the funding organisations rather than specific projects.
This funding aimed to provide for the immediate needs of faith-based LGBT+ organisations and the light-touch application and award process represents Consortium’s commitment to ensuring funds are accessible to smaller and new LGBT+ organisations.
A list of grantees can be found here, and we will be showcasing individual grantees over the coming weeks.
Paul Roberts OBE, Chief Executive at Consortium said: “We are delighted to have been able to deliver a third iteration of funding thanks to our private donor. Thanks to their generosity, we have been able to target funds to an area of focus we know has received less financial support through our own funding. Through this fund we have been able to award grants to 20 remarkable LGBT+ organisations working across the country. Consortium remains committed to bringing new funds into the sector and providing new opportunities for smaller LGBT+ organisations who are doing such inspiring work.”
