Lloyds TSB Foundation Funding
Lloyds TSB Foundation for England & Wales is pleased to announce its increased income for 2010 as £25.24m (£20.8m in 2009) and is delighted to confirm that this higher level of funding will be sustained for 2011, 2012 and 2013.
The independently run Foundation is keen to hear from registered charities working across Blackburn, Rossendale, Wyre and Fylde who can demonstrate how their work is making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged people, and helping them to play a fuller role in the community.
If you are interested in learning more, please visit the Foundation's website at www.lloydstsbfoundations.org.uk.
The website includes details on how to register an enquiry; and once you fill in a short eligibility questionnaire, and your charity appears to be eligible, your details are passed to the Grant Manager for Lancashire & North Manchester, Yvonne Taylor. Yvonne will then contact you for a chat about your request for funding to see if it is something that the Foundation could potentially support. Yvonne is particularly interested to speak to charities that support homelessness, issues around mental health, the elderly and ex-prisoners.
The average grant size in Lancashire & North Manchester will be around £20,000 in 2010, but grants are made which are appropriate to the size and needs of the charity, so they could be less or more than this depending on your charity’s circumstances. Funding is available for core costs, including salaries and rent, as well as project costs. Charities must be targeting disadvantaged people, and must be able to show how their work makes a difference, so they will need to have appropriate monitoring systems in place.
Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales is one of the UK’s leading grant-makers and funds small and medium-sized charities working at the heart of communities to tackle disadvantage across England and Wales.
