New funding options in 2022

We have been listening to feedback from previous applicants and to the need in the third sector as the pandemic continues.

We are delighted to offer an increase in the value of grants this year. The higher level of grant available (£25,000) is now open to Community Interest Companies and community benefit societies for the first time. The amount available to other types of non profit organisations has also grown to £2,500.

Organisations now have a longer period in which to deliver activities – 18 months from payment of the grant. In order to better serve good causes we are also challenging ourselves to deliver funding within two months of an application.

Finally, 2022 is the year in which we venture into unrestricted funding for smaller charities and good causes. Organisations that undertake activities that we do not fund (Funding Guide) are still able to apply for project-based funding.
