The foundation has reopened its Small and Large Grants applications on a rolling basis. This announcement relates to grants in two main areas:
• Creating the best start in life for disadvantaged children and young people
• Reducing isolation and loneliness for older people.
Charities registered with the Charity Commission or relevant Central registry of the respective Guernsey, Jersey or Isle of Man’s government can apply as long as their beneficiaries are in England and Wales.
The Foundation offers large grants starting from £10,000 up to around £60,000, and small grants of between £1,000 and £5,000. Organisations with an income of less than £500,000 can apply for a small grant covering core funding, while those with an income exceeding £500,000 can apply for a large grant covering project and delivery costs.
Final decisions are expected in around two to three months for small grant applications, and around three to four months for large grants. Applications are now accepted at any time.
