Lloyds Bank Foundation offers grants of up to £100,000

It was announced last week that the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales is offering small charities grants of up to £100,000 towards their core costs.

Applications are being accepted from charities with annual incomes of between £25,000 and £1m that are working to address complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness or domestic abuse.

The foundation has refined its grant-making process, with improvements including a continuously open application process and a simplified reporting procedure.

Visit their newly updated website to check if you are eligible for funding. Here, you can also apply for grants with the foundation hoping to give a final decision on funding applications within five months.

To be considered for funding, organisations must meet a number of criteria, including having a track record of working with people aged 17 and over, having free reserves of less than 12 months and having delivered services for more than a year.
