The Allen Lane Foundation: Social Cohesion Programme

Education & Employment Health & Social Care

The Allen Lane Foundation’s Social Cohesion Programme seeks to support community-led grassroot groups or organisations at a very local level where there are issues which identify marginalised groups of people (especially those from within the Foundation’s priorities, but not exclusively) who are excluded. Project applications should propose ways to make communities more inclusive for the betterment of all.

The aim of the programme is:

  • to proactively work towards building better community cohesion and trust, and encouraging respect and understanding in the local area;
  • to proactively promote the inclusion of marginalised groups and individuals in the life of the local community; and
  • to fund work which breaks down barriers and tensions in the local community thereby reducing feelings of division and “them and us”.

Applications will be particularly encouraged from areas of high deprivation but not exclusively.

The Foundation is open to supporting actions which are new or may have been tried before or are on-going, however, the work must have lasting benefits for those people the projects are aimed at.

Deadline: Continuous rolling process. Applications will be considered at the next Trustees meeting (generally held in February, June and October).
