Grants are being offered, as part of the Company’s new funding strategy and priorities, to charitable groups supporting people in disadvantaged communities in London, and the East and North East of England.
Funding is available to not-for-profit organisations, community groups, charities, church groups and those of other faiths whose work addresses its four key themes – LEARN, LEAD, LOVE and LIVE – and will support the following priority groups:
- Children and young people
- Older people
- Church and communities
Applications are being accepted under the LIVE theme only at this time. Under this theme, support is available for activities that:
- Offer access to the arts, creativity, nature and the outdoors, providing positive experiences where people can express themselves and feel more connected to others and the environment around them.
- Reduce isolation and develop new connections between people and link them better with relevant networks of support and services.
- Promote spirituality as well as emotional wellbeing. (In this context, ‘spirituality’ means an ability to search for meaning and make connections beyond ourselves.)
Grants of £20,000 to £50,000 are available for up to two years for project or core funding and priority will be given to organisations working in areas with high levels of disadvantage and low levels of participation in creativity and the arts or access to nature and the outdoors.
For Adults & Families (in our Church and Communities Programme), grants are available for work in London,
Norfolk, Lincolnshire and the North East of England (County Durham, Tyne & Wear, Northumberland and Teesside)
Applications can be submitted at any time.
