- Care Leavers
- Domestic Abuse
- Homeless and Vulnerably Housed
- Learning Disabilities
- Mental Health
- Offending, Prison or Community Service
- Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

Successful applicants will also get support from a regional manager who will work with them to access a wide range of organisational development support to help meet identified needs.
At least 25% will be ringfenced for Black, Asian and minority ethnic led charities.
The Fund will remain open for the rest of 2021, and applications can be made at any time.
On Tuesday 30 March, the Foundation will be holding a live Q&A panel to talk through and answer questions about the 2021 funding. Register here
