Focus of Fund:

A new programme to provide revenue grants and support for the organisational development of small and medium-sized charities working with people dealing with complex social issues.

Applications may be submitted at any time.

Fund Description:

Lloyds Bank Foundation is inviting applications for funding from its new programme for small and medium-sized charities that support people dealing with complex social issues. Grants are primarily to support core costs for up to three years and the foundation expects the charities to make a difference to people’s lives through direct support for individuals.

In 2020, the foundation will be making around 170 new grants to charities in England and Wales, half of which will be for £100,000 over three years, and the other half for £45,000 over three years. The foundation has assessed local need for each of its priority themes and the size of grant a charity can apply for varies accordingly. The themes are as follows;

  • Addiction and dependency
  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Domestic abuse
  • Care leavers
  • Homeless and vulnerably housed
  • Learning disabilities
  • Sexual abuse and exploitation
  • Offending, prison and community service
  • Mental health
  • Trafficking and modern slavery
  • Young parents.

Applications will be accepted from charities or Charitable Incorporated Organisations that are registers with the Charity Commission and that have been delivering direct services to vulnerable people for at least one year.

Charities are expected to demonstrate an understanding of their own organisational development issues and to build a partnership with the Lloyds Bank Foundation to address these.
