Lloyds Bank Foundation (LBF) awards two-year unrestricted grants of £50,000 to UK registered charities (annual income of between £25,000 and £1 million) with a proven track record of helping people on a journey of positive change through in-depth, holistic and person-centred support.
In-depth: LBF fund charities which work with people over a prolonged period (a minimum of 12-weeks). As a result, they do not fund work that is primarily one-off advice or signposting.
Holistic and person-centred: LBF expect the charity to use a ‘person centred approach’. The individual will have been assessed and their needs identified with a plan of support put in place. Where your charity cannot meet all of an individual’s identified needs, you will need to tell the Foundation how you are working in partnership with others to address them.
Targeted: LBF do not support work that is purely reactive, or for the benefit of an entire geographic community. The charity will have identified a specific group of beneficiaries, will understand their needs and pro-actively seek to support them.
The Foundation supports charities helping people whose lives are significantly affected by these complex social issues:
- Addiction or dependency on alcohol, drugs, and/or gambling
- Asylum seekers and refugees
- Care leavers
- Domestic and sexual abuse
- Homelessness/vulnerably housed
- Learning disabilities
- Mental health
- Offending, prison or community service
- Sexual exploitation
- Trafficking and modern slavery
- Young parents
When reviewing applications, the following will be considered:
- local need;
- the prevalence of eligible small and medium sized charities;
- the nature of the region; and
- the balance of our portfolio to date.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme throughout 2021.
