Small to medium-size charities in England and Wales that are working to tackle complex social issues can apply once again for core funding.
After a break of several months, the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales have relaunched their grants programme with a ‘simpler, more flexible and transparent approach’ to help smaller charities be stronger and more effective.
The new approach is as follows:
The Foundation’s eligibility criteria now enable it to respond where need is greatest by analysing the number of eligible small and medium-sized charities in a given area, specific local needs and the size of the Foundation’s current investment in each issue and region.
Charities with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million that work across England and Wales tackling complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness, domestic abuse, addiction and dependency, and young parents and who have a proven track record of helping people achieve positive change in their local communities can apply.
Applications can now be made at any time, and groups can expect notification of an outcome in around five months.
