Invest and Enable grants
The Lloyds Bank Foundation’s Invest and Enable grants have reopened for applications this week.
Following the launch of its brand new strategy, the Foundation will be funding charities with larger grants for longer, and with fewer restrictions.
As part of this, it has made some small changes to its funding criteria. All the details and application forms are on the We Fund section of the Lloyds Bank Foundation website.
What they fund
They fund work which helps people aged 17+ overcome complex social issues such as dependency, mental health and abuse.
Decide which grant to apply for
They offer two grant programmes, one for core costs and one for developing your charity. You can apply for either programme, but not both.
Invest grants provide long-term funding for the day-to-day running of your charity (core costs), and/or the direct delivery of your charity’s work. Invest is open for applications twice a year, please check the funding timetable to find out when they are open for new applications.
Enable grants are awarded to charities which have identified clear development needs, and provide a great opportunity to strengthen charities to deliver more effectively.
Before you apply, take a look at their Funding Timetable to check if the programme is accepting applications.
If you are not sure which programme to apply for, get in touch with the funder to talk about which one is right for you.
