The Henry Smith Charity: Strengthening Communities

Health & Social Care

The Strengthening Communities grant programme (up to £20,000 per year for a maximum of three years) is designed to support small community-led charitable organisations (with an income between £20,000 – £500,000) working at grassroots level. Through this grant programme The Henry Smith Charity wants to make sure that their funding reaches the most disadvantaged areas of the UK, targeting places that are economically marginalised and affected by poverty.

The Henry Smith Charity funds established organisations with a track record of delivering services directly to beneficiaries. They are looking for organisations that are embedded within their communities and are addressing local needs.

The Strengthening Communities grant programme funds work that enables:

  • People from across the community to participate in activities which improve connectedness, opportunities and wellbeing
  • People who are excluded, vulnerable or facing other forms of hardship to have access to community-based services that support positive lasting change
  • A stronger, active, more engaged community.

Deadline: Continuous rolling basis – reviewed within six months.
