The funding focus is about connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community. They support applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged.
They help small community groups and small local charities. They do not have a formal definition for a small charity, but if a charity has financial reserves in the hundreds of thousands or millions, it is very unlikely that they would be able to help.
They help groups with:
- Activity projects
- Equipment and materials for use by members
- Member transport
- Day trips, outings and group holidays in the UK
Grants range from £100 up to £5,000, with the average grant in 2020 being approx. £900.
