We support excellent smaller charities to unlock change for people facing significant disadvantage.
Each year, we award grants across four categories:
Our theme for the year ended 31st March 2024 is Immediate Needs as a Result of the Cost of Living Crisis. Grants up to a maximum of £40,000 will be available to charities with a turnover of less than £5 million. Online applications will be accepted between 1st and 31st July 2023. We have £600,000 to distribute.
Three Year Funding Programme
We offer 10 grants of £25,000 a year for three years. We award these grants to organisations which can use a grant to create a ripple effect to achieve multiple outcomes. The next round of grants will be in our year ending 31st March 2025.
We always look to move swiftly in the event of natural disasters and offer support where we feel able to assist. Due to the unpredictability of such disasters, we don’t accept applications under this category. We have £150,000 available under this category.
These grants are available up to a maximum of £10,000 and will be made to charities with a turnover of less than £250,000. Online applications will be accepted between 1st and 30th September 2023. We have £500,000 to distribute. We aim to award these grants to charities who rely on volunteer support and make an impact in their communities.
