Lloyds Bank Foundation’s Racial Equity Funding Opens for Application

22 April 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The new Racial Equality strand is open to charities with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million.

To be eligible, applicants need to be supporting people from specific minoritised communities to overcome any of the following 11 Complex Social Issues:

  • Addiction and dependency on alcohol, drugs and/or gambling
  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Care leavers
  • Domestic and sexual abuse
  • Homeless and vulnerably housed
  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental health
  • Offending, prison or community service
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Trafficking and modern slavery
  • Young parents

Successful applicants will receive:

  • Two-year unrestricted grants of £50,000
  • Support from the Foundation’s regional managers who will work with them to access a wide range of organisational development support to help meet identified needs.

The funding is intended for charities that can demonstrate that some of the services they provide are in-depth, holistic, and targeted at a particular Complex Social Issue.

This strand of funding does not support purely second-tier or infrastructure organisations, or organisations whose activities are purely campaigning.

There are no deadlines. Applications will be accepted throughout the year.
