Funding to Support the Development of Small Charities and Social Enterprises – 7th January 2019 (UK)

The Fore Trust has announced that the next funding round to support the development of small charities, social enterprises and community interest companies will open for registrations on the 6th December 2018 at 10 am with a closing date of the 7th January 2019.

The Trust is offering development funding of up to £30,000 and business support to expand the capacity of small charities, social enterprises and community interest companies. To qualify applicant organisations will need to have a turnover of less than £500,000 per year.

To apply for funding, organisations must register at the start of each funding round. Numbers for each round are capped and registration are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the cap is reached, the round is closed. Once successfully registered, organisations are invited to submit a simple application.

Examples of previous grants awarded include:

  • Street Doctors who received a grant of £30,000 to enable the organisation to transition from being a small-scale student voluntary organisation to a national movement.  The funding enables the organisation to employ a part time CEO and to develop the infrastructure to formally contract with Youth Offending Institutions and Teams.
  • Art Against Knives which uses art as a tool for communication and personal development for 16-25-year olds received a grant of £27,510 to help fund the strategic development of the organisation to strengthen its longer-term sustainability.
  • Circle Crew for Change which is the UK’s first youth mutual organisation owned by young people, led by young people and for young people received a grant of £30,000 to fund a part-time Project Development Manager to drive the organisation at the critical transitional period in its development.
