The aim of this is to provide funding for groups’ core costs – meaning expenditure that is not connected to delivering projects but focusing on investing in the organisation as a whole, such as basic running costs.
The grants will be used to support groups that can evidence a sustained beneficial impact on people’s lives who are excluded or disadvantaged. This may be through low income, rural or social isolation, age, disabilities, race, sexuality or gender. Priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage.
Area: projects based in Leeds, Bradford or Wakefield can apply.
Amount: Grants of between £1,000 and £5000 are available.
Closing date: The deadline is 12 noon 19th October 2017 and decisions will be announced in early December. A second round will open in 2018.
