The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has announced it would like to see more applications for development funding from registered charities and CIOs in England and Wales as it still has £2.5 million to award from its ‘Enable’ grants programme for 2015.
The Enable grants programme is intended to strengthen charities and charitable incorporated organisations (with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million) that are working with people experiencing issues of multiple disadvantage at points of transition, but have also identified clear development areas which will support their growth.
Enable grants are for up to £15,000 over two years and are available to charities working with people aged 17 years and over who are experiencing at least one of the following:
• Have been abused or are at risk of abuse
• Are victims of sexual exploitation or trafficking
• Are ex-offenders or those at risk of offending
• Are long term unemployed and are considered to be furthest away from the labour market
• Are leaving care
• Are homeless
• Have learning disabilities
• Have mental health and wellbeing issues
• Have addictions
• Are refugees or asylum seekers
• Have caring responsibilities
• Are older and are losing independence
• Are isolated and vulnerable
• Have severe financial difficulty as a compounding disadvantage
Applications may be submitted at any time. There are no deadlines.
However, enquiries should be submitted by Friday 31 July 2015 to ensure a decision will be reached within the current year.
Full details about the programme can be found on theLloyds Bank Foundation website.
