The Lloyds Bank Foundation 2021 funding programme is now open, with £9.5m to distribute to small and local charities in England and Wales.
Registered charities helping complex social issues involving any of the following can apply: addiction and dependency, asylum seekers and refugees, care leavers, domestic abuse, homelessness and vulnerably housed, learning disabilities, mental health, offending, prison or community service or young parents.
In 2021, the Foundation will offer around 190 charities a two-year unrestricted grant of £50,000, which gives charities greater flexibility over how they use their resources.
Alongside the funding, charities will be supported by a regional manager, who will work with them to identify priority development needs, and support them to access a wide range of organisation development support to meet those needs.
This year the foundation will be open all year; rather than distributing grants via multiple funding rounds, applications will be considered at any time. This means that charities can apply for funds as and when they are ready.
To be eligible, charities need to have an annual income of between £25k and £1m.
