The funding aims to support smaller, locally based organisations in Great Britain with projects to improve resilience within communities of interest, such as people who are living with disabilities or chronic illness, in poverty, homeless, elderly and isolated, or have another demonstrable significant need.

Grants of up to £2,000 can be used towards the costs of sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. The Foundation is also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting the community.

Successful projects will be expected to demonstrate improvements for beneficiaries against at least one of the key performance targets:

  • Decreased social isolation.

  • Improved health and wellbeing.

  • Improved resilience/coping mechanisms.

  • Improved life skills.

  • Improved opportunities.

Priority will be given to local organisations that have Greggs shops or premises nearby.

The next deadline for applications is 23 February 2020.
