The Triangle Trust has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Development grants programme is noon on the 14th February 2020.
During this funding round, the Trust will provide grants to not for profit organisations such as registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises or community interest companies working with unpaid carers, The Trust would like to see applicants use these grants to enhance their resilience, so that when the grant comes to end the applicant organisation’s income will not be reduced. Grants are available from £10,000 to £80,000 over three years with a duration of 6 months to 3 years.
A maximum of £30,000 per year or £2,500 per month for smaller projects can be requested.
Applicants’ annual income for the most recent financial year should be less than £1million, although priority will be given to smaller organisations.
The Trust also holds a separate funding round for organisations working with the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders. This is due to open for applications in March 2020.
Previous projects supported include:
- A grant of £49,405 over three years to Carers of Barking to fund IT improvements to both the organisation’s website and the monitoring and reporting systems to improve efficiency, professionalism and ultimately the sustainability of the organisation;
- West Norfolk Carers which received a grant of £37,082 to diversify its income and is using Triangle funding to cover the cost of a part-time Income Generation and Marketing Manager.
