Please note: We understand your current services are likely to be affected by coronavirus. However, as our application process takes approximately 6 months, we would like your application to detail how you would wish to deliver your services once the current government restrictions have been lifted.
We also understand, due to current uncertainties, the information we ask you to send with your application e.g. your organisational budget, may be subject to change. We will take this into consideration when assessing your application and will let you know if we need any further information from you.
The Improving Lives grant programme provides grants to charitable organisations that help people when other sources of support have failed, are inappropriate, or are simply not available.
We support established organisations delivering services directly to beneficiaries. We are looking for services which can demonstrate a track record of success, and evidence the effectiveness of the work.
This is our largest grants programme, through which the majority of our funds are distributed.
