Lloyds Bank Foundation

From 29th July 2022 the Lloyds Bank Foundation will be closed to new funding applications as they prepare to launch their new strategy in October.

They will be accepting new applications from eligible small and local charities up until 5pm Friday 29th July 2022. Should you wish to apply before that date you can do so here: They aim to give all charities a decision within four months. 

They want to ensure all grants that are part of their 2018 – 2022 strategy Reaching Further can be made this year. This enables them to prioritise the assessment of these applications while developing their new funding programme which will open later this year. 

They encourage all eligible charities to apply for an unrestricted £50,000 grant by 29 July.

Alongside the funding, charities will have access to capacity building support from specialist consultants or colleagues from Lloyds Banking Group.  

If you would like to hear from them as soon as their funding reopens, you can sign up for the Lloyds Bank Foundation email alert here.

The National Emergencies Trust launches £1.2million Local Action Fund

The National Emergencies Trust has launched a £1.2million Local Action Fund with Crowdfunder UK to support community and voluntary organisations to counter the financial impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Organisations have the opportunity to receive up to £10,000 each in match-funding from the National Emergencies Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal.

The fund will focus on projects taking positive action for people in their communities affected by the pandemic, from supporting mental health, to assisting with financial hardship or helping communities disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.

Eligible charities and groups will be able to use the funding in any way that enables their efforts, from covering core costs to launching new local services.
