TRANSforming Futures Fund Now Accepting Applications


07 February 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to help create positive, lasting change for transgender people in England.

National Lottery Community Fund is supporting the five-year TRANSforming Futures project to provide solutions to the issues in healthcare and justice for transgender people across England.

The focus of the Fund is communities-led, grassroots organisations that are led by and for trans people. Broader LGBTQ+ organisations undertaking trans-specific activity that is being run by trans people will also be considered.

Projects should seek to improve existing outcomes, make changes to current systems or pursue different kinds of systems altogether.

There are three areas in which grants will be made:

  • Healthcare.
  • Criminal Justice.
  • Under 18s (with a focus on health and justice).

There is a funding pot of £100,000, from which grants of up to £25,000 will be made.

The deadline to apply is 20 March 2023.


How To Apply

The deadline to apply is 20 March 2023. Decisions are expected within 12 weeks.

Guidelines and an online application can be found on the Transforming Futures Partnership website.
