The Invest Programme is open to Round 3 applications from charities and CIOS in England and Wales.
The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales provides funding to enable charities and CIOS in England or Wales to break or prevent the cycle of disadvantage.
The Invest Programme’s funding is intended for longer term core or direct delivery funding for charities which are delivering clear outcomes as a result of their work with people experiencing multiple disadvantage at one of the critical points in their life.
Funding is available for core organisational costs which are related to the day to day running of the charity. Consideration will only be given to requests for core costs where over 50% of the charity's work and expenditure meets the Foundation's criteria. Funding is also available for costs associated with the direct delivery of the charity's work.
Grants are available for between £10,000 and £25,000 per year for two or three years, with the opportunity for continuation funding for a further period of up to six years in total.
Round 3 is open to applications with a deadline of 27 May 2016 (5pm).
