The Triangle Trust has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Development grants programme is noon on the 2nd November 2017.
The Trust provides core funding to support organisations to implement a step change in their development and therefore build increased sustainability for the future. During this funding round, the Trust will provide grants to not for profit organisations working towards the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders. 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. Applicants must be a registered charity, not-for-profit social enterprise or community interest company working within the UK with a UK office.
Previous projects supported include:
Open Gates which received a grant of £80,000 over three years to develop its furniture restoration business and to provide opportunities for offenders to build their skills and confidence, to find future employment and reduce the risk of reoffending.
The Oswin Project which supports inmates at HMP Northumberland to secure employment opportunities upon their release whilst providing an ongoing mentoring programme to help them integrate back into their communities and break the offending cycle.
