|Looking For Core Funding?
The only scheduled round of Lloyds Bank Foundation’s Invest fund for this year will be opening later this month. Designed to provide multi-year core funding, the Invest funding stream makes grants of between £10,000 and £25,000 per year for two or three years, with the potential for continuation funding up to a total of six years.
To be eligible, your work must be supporting people facing multiple disadvantage, at a specified point of transition in their lives – these include offenders being released from prison, looked after young people leaving care, and people suffering abuse at the point they decide to remove themselves from the abusive situation. A full list of eligible transition points is available on the Lloyds Bank Foundation website, and will be part of the eligibility questionnaire when applications open. You must also be a charity or CIO, with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million, and your service users must be aged 17 or over.
Applications for this round will open on Monday 9th April, with a deadline of 18th May. Applications that go through to Stage 2 will receive an assessment visit July-August this year, and will be notified of the final decision in the week commencing 5th November.
