Charities in England and Wales with an income of between £25,000 and £1million that are tackling complex social issues can now apply for core funding grants worth up to £100,000. The funding is part of the Lloyds Bank Foundations relaunched grants programme which now has a simpler and more flexible approach.
The Foundation helps charities to tackle the following complex social issues:
- Addiction and dependency
- Asylum seekers and refugees
- Care leavers
- Domestic abuse
- Homeless and vulnerably housed
- Learning disabilities
- Mental health
- Offending, prison and community service
- Sexual abuse and exploitation
- Trafficking and modern slavery
- Young parents
Grants are available of up to £100,000 and are available over three years (with the possibility of continuing to six years) and can be used entirely for core costs. Core costs are overhead costs of an organisation, as opposed to those specific to a project; with charities able to flex how much they spend each year.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
