The Community Plus programme provides grants of up to
£5,000. The scheme is available to small local UK charities or local projects
of national charities with funding available to cover salaries, equipment or
materials. Grants must directly help disadvantaged people in your local area.
The only criteria for the Community Plus grants are they
must be a UK registered charity; must be a local charity or local project of a
larger charity; the grant must benefit local disadvantaged people.
The Central Fund programme offers grants of up to £10,000.
This programme is available to charities and credit unions anywhere in the UK
for projects related to education, training or financial capability.
For education and training the activity could be anything
where disadvantaged people improve their confidence in a skill or their
understanding of a subject. This does not have to be formal training or lead to
a qualification, although those activities would be eligible too.
For financial capability activities may help disadvantaged
people understand how to manage their money. It could include budgeting skills,
accessing affordable credit as well as managing the challenges that arise from
being a carer, unemployment, disability or relationship break up.
All funding is for a one off donation. If you are
unsuccessful you can re-apply at any time.
If your charity or not for profit organisation fits the
criteria, what are you waiting for?
