Church Urban Fund: Together Funds

Religion

The Church Urban Fund’s Together Funds programme offers grants of up to £5,000 for faith-based organisations to engage in social action, either for initiating or developing community work.

The activity should meet the following primary criteria:

  • It must be directly tackling poverty. We favour activities that are working directly with people in need.
  • The lead applicant must be faith-based.
  • Applicants need to be working in partnership with at least one other organisation. These do not need to be faith-based.
  • The activity must have a local focus, being based locally with community involvement in identifying needs, initiating responses and running the project.

In addition to the above  criteria, CUF also assess applications by a number of priorities. These are:

  • Activity linked to or supported by a member organisation of the Together Network.
  • Activity identified by dioceses as being key to the reduction of deprivation in their
    area.
  • Activity that involves and encourages volunteering.
  • Activity that raises capacity and encourages learning, which leads people onto new
    things.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
