United Way UK’s Give Local grants are now open for applications.
United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their potential thanks to a good start in life, an inspiring education, a path to income mobility and a healthy lifestyle. To do this, it takes a collaborative approach with other charitable organisations, businesses and individuals interested in making a positive contribution and supporting those in need.
The grants aim to support small, local organisations working hard to help people within their own communities. By giving out grants, United Way UK hopes to better understand the range of issues affecting these local communities and to create a clear picture as to level of these needs, what good work is being done to address them and how this work can grow to have even greater impact. This information will help United Way UK to target its work, build long-lasting partnerships with funded organisations, and to inform partners about future volunteering and donation options.
Give Local grants are inclusive and aim to support community based, local organisations. Communities and organisations can inform United Way UK as to their needs as they relate to the priority issue areas of education, income and health. United Way UK is particularly interested in those addressing the needs of disadvantaged people. There will be 29 Give Local Grants of £1,000 each.
These grants have been made possible thanks to the generosity of Costco warehouse employees. This is in association with the ‘Give Local’ campaign, encouraging people to give directly to support causes within their community and available to other businesses interested in engaging their employees in making a difference in communities local to their operations.
