The Triangle Trust provides Development Grants up to £120,000 over 3 years for agencies that are supporting people in need within the UK.
Grants are available for up to £40,000 or 50% current annual income, whichever is lowest, per year up to a maximum of 3 years. The amount requested each year is expected to taper down as applicants develop other sustainable income streams.
Development Grants provide funds towards an organisation’s core costs so that sustainable income sources can be developed and the organisation’s income will not be reduced when the grant comes to an end.
Registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies that are working within the UK and have a UK office are eligible to apply.
Organisations must:
• Have a constitution whose primary purpose is to support unpaid carers (April deadline) or the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders (November deadline);
• Be involved in providing direct practical support work, research projects or policy or campaigning work relevant to unpaid carers or the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders.
• Demonstrate in their application how they have expertise and a history of working with unpaid carers or offenders.
• Have some volunteer input.
• Have an annual income of less than £2million for the most recent financial year, although priority will be given to smaller organisations.
• Make a commitment to develop sustainable income streams during the grant period.
• Have evaluation systems for their work in place, and if not then part of the grant should be used to put a system in place.
2015 deadlines are:
• For organisations working with carers: 12 noon on 30 April 2015 ;
• For organisations working with the rehabilitation of offenders and ex-offenders: 12 noon on 5 November 2015
Application forms are available to complete online.
The application process is two-stage. Shortlisted applicants will be required to host a visit from the Triangle Trust and present their strategic plan for the next few years.
