Lloyds Bank Foundation is joining us for a funding surgery:
Gary Beharrell, Regional Grant Manager for Lloyds Bank Foundation will be joining us on Wednesday 2nd May 2018. Registered charities based in North East Lincolnshire have the opportunity to attend a one-to-one appointment, places are limited, so it is a ‘first come, first served’ basis. We will be hosting the funding surgery at The Enterprise Village, Prince Albert Gardens, Grimsby, DN31 3AT.
Gary will be able to talk to you about your project ideas and give advice on the various funds they manage; including tips for a good application and common failure reasons.
A little bit about Lloyds Bank Foundation and the grants they manage:
Lloyds Bank Foundation grants programme is designed to support registered charities that help people experiencing multiple disadvantage make positive and lasting changes to their lives at critical points.
Lloyds Bank Foundation has a strict eligibility criteria, some of which are listed below:
- You must be a Charity or Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) registered with the Charity Commission.
- Your charity must have an income between £25,000 and £1 million.
- Your charity must work with people facing multiple disadvantage aged 17 and over.
- The only exception to this is support to people aged under 17 that are young parents, or looked after children and learning disabled young people moving into independent living.
BEFORE booking a one-to-one, PLEASE CHECK your organisation and the work you are undertaking is eligible to apply to Lloyds Bank Foundation – you can do this by reading their eligibility document, available through this link https://www.lloydsbankfoundation.org.uk/2016-04-20%20Printable%20Eligibility%20Criteria.pdf . If you are unsure ask SSNEL for help.
Funding Programmes include:
Invest – Invest grants provide longer term core or direct delivery funding for eligible charities that are delivering clear outcomes as a result of their work. Invest grants are from £10,000 up to maximum of £25,000 per year for two or three years, with the opportunity for continuation funding for a further period – up to six years in total.
This fund opens 9th April and closes for initial applications 18th May 2018. If you think this fund fits your project, due to the tight timeframe please undertake some preparation – think about the questions you want to ask and put together an idea of what you think your charities needs are.
Enable – Enable grants are awarded to charities which have identified clear development needs, and provide a great opportunity to strengthen charities to deliver more effectively.
Enable grants are up to a total of £15,000 over one or two years, and can reinvigorate charities through funding organisational improvements, development of areas such as leadership and governance, improved systems and demonstrating outcomes. These developments put charities in a stronger position to better deliver services and attract funding. Applications for Enable grants are accepted on an ongoing basis. Again please come prepared with questions and your charity’s needs.
Remember places are limited, so it is a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
We have allocated 45 minutes per appointment, booking is through Sector Support North East Lincolnshire only, please contact:
