Funding to support charities with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million to recover beyond the immediate crisis of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic
Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales launched a new £7.4 million COVID Recovery Fund on 3 August to support small and medium sized registered charities in England and Wales that are helping people overcome complex social issues such as: sexual abuse; modern slavery and trafficking; race equality; mental health; domestic abuse; learning disability; addiction and dependency; asylum seekers and refugees.
The Fund will provide 140 charities with a two-year unrestricted grant of £50,000 alongside the support of a Development Partner to help identify and act on any organisational challenges they are facing.To ensure this funding is distributed equitably, a minimum of 25% of the grants will be awarded to charities led by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
A Q&A webinar will be held on 11 August (2pm – 3.30pm). Registration can be done through the Foundation’s website. Applications will be accepted from 10 am on 3 August to 5pm on 11 September 2020. Full details and webinar details at: https://www.lloydsbankfoundation.org.uk/we-fund
