The Triangle Trust has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Development grants programme is noon on the 28th April 2016.
During this funding round, the Trust will provide grants to not for profit organisations working with unpaid carers, The Trust would like to see applicants use these grants to develop sustainable income sources, so that when the grant comes to end the applicant organisation’s income will not be reduced. Grants are available for up to £80,000 over three years with a maximum of £35,000 in year one.
The Trust also holds a separate funding round for organisations working with the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders. This is due to open for applications in October 2016.
Previous projects supported include:
- A grant of £49,405 over three years to Carers of Barking to fund IT improvements to both the organisation’s website and the monitoring and reporting systems to improve efficiency, professionalism and ultimately the sustainability of the organisation;
- West Norfolk Carers which received a grant of £37,082 to diversify its income and is using Triangle funding to cover the cost of a part-time Income Generation and Marketing Manager.
