Churches and Christian community groups that wish to tackle poverty in England’s most deprived communities can apply for grants of up to £5,000 through the Church Urban Fund’s “Together Grants Programme”.
The Church Urban Fund is especially interested in funding projects that tackle the underlying causes of poverty. Applicants should:
- Be faith based organisations
- Be directly tackling poverty
- Work in partnership with one other organisations (does not have to be faith based)
- The activity must have a local focus, being based locally with community involvement in identifying needs, initiating responses and running the project.
Applications to fund short term activities such as one off events or initiatives that only meet people’s immediate needs are considered low priority. Applications can be submitted at any time.
