Fund title: Lloyds Bank Foundation
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Grants to support the running costs and development of charities which help people experiencing multiple disadvantage
Initial applications for Invest: 16 June 2017; 22 September 2017
Lloyds Bank Foundation funding programmes are designed to support charities which help people who are experiencing multiple disadvantage to make positive and lasting changes at critical points in their life. Charities must be working with people aged 17 or over who are experiencing one or more difficulties, such as long-term unemployment, abuse, addiction, homelessness, mental health issues, learning disabilities or are isolated and vulnerable eg. older people, carers, care leavers, ex-offenders, asylum seekers.
There are two programmes:
Invest – longer-term core or delivery funding for charities which meet the aims of the programme and are delivering clear outcomes as a result of their work. Through the Invest programme, the foundation funds ‘core’ organisational costs related to the day-to-day running of charities, this includes salaries and other costs associated with direct delivery. Grants are up to £25,000 a year for three years with the opportunity for further continuation funding.
Enable – shorter-term grants to strengthen charities which meet the aims of the programme, helping them to deliver their mission more effectively. It is not a small grants programme but rather provides funding for development costs such as staff training, business development, organisational changes (eg. mergers) and consultancy support. Grants can be up to a total of £15,000 over two years.
The Enable programme is open for applications on an ongoing basis; for Invest, initial applications should be made in line with set deadlines after which eligible charities are invited to progress to assessment before submitting a full application.
