Our new National Influencing Programme provides grants of £30,000 – £150,000 for up to three years, to support charities seeking to influence and achieve change in national policy and practice for people facing complex issues around specific issues within accommodation, social security and refugees and asylum seeker support.
We’re particularly interested in initiatives that are led or actively developed by people with lived experience and that seek to address inequalities people face at a structural level.
By national we mean influencing work on a Wales wide level, England and Wales level, or UK level.
Note the deadline for Expressions of Interest for this National Influencing Programme is 19th May 2023. Full applications will then need to be submitted by 1 September 2023.
Charities and CICs with a minimum turnover of £25,000 are eligible to apply (note there is no maximum turnover level for our National programmes, and it is open to CICs as well as charities).
