Working in partnership with a diverse range of community-led LGBT+ organisations, and funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, Consortium is facilitating the new LGBT+ Futures: Equity Fund. This will be £465K of grant funding available to LGBT+ organisations who are led by and for the following targeted community areas:
- D/deaf and/or Disabled People
- Lesbian, Bi and Trans+ Women
- Older LGBT+ People
- People of Colour or People from Black, Asian or other Minoritised Ethnicities
- Trans and Non-Binary People
We know that funding for these targeted areas of our LGBT+ communities is disproportionately low and increased resource and support is needed. This funding will be part of a programme of activity for organisations working with these communities.
This programme has been designed in partnership with organisations already working across these targeted areas to create a participative funding process. We are committed to continuing in this way, ensuring those with lived experience of these areas are in the driving seat of the decision making.
The deadline for applications is Monday 17th January 2022.
