Leeds Building Society Charitable Foundation Grant – 7th October 2019 (UK)

UK registered charities, or those affiliated with a registered charity working to help those at disadvantage in society can apply to the Leeds Building Society Charitable Foundation for support. Grants of between £250 – £1,000 are available to cover the costs involved in directly supporting those in need including those with disabilities, affected by homelessness, or with serious health issues.

Previous grants have gone to organisations supporting young people in applying for jobs and towards the purchase of a portable multi-sensory environment, that will turn any room into a sensory room.

Donations usually fund items of “capital expenditure” i.e. items must directly help those in need, rather than contributing to the charity’s running costs.

The Foundation accepts applications from UK registered charities, or those affiliated with a registered charity.

Applications are reviewed every quarter. The deadline is the 7th October 2019.

Projects previously funded include:

  • SASH, an organisation that provides guidance on creating CVs and applying for jobs to aid homeless 16 to 25-year olds, received £985.
  • Byker Community Association received £500 to buy new books and build an interactive story hub designed by the children of Byker themselves.
