Clothworkers’ Foundation

Open Grants Programme has now fully re-opened

The Clothworkers’ Foundation aims to use its funding to improve the quality of life for people and communities that face disadvantage. Capital grants are available under its Main Grants Programme, which is for UK charities with an annual income of less than £15 million, or its Small Grants Programme which is for UK charities with an income of less than £250,000.

Capital grants are available to UK registered charities working in the UK in one of the following areas: alcohol and substance misuse, disabled people, disadvantaged minority communities, disadvantaged young people, domestic and sexual violence, older people, homelessness, prisoners and ex-offenders and visual impairment.

You must be able to demonstrate that the work of your organisation fits within one or more of the programme areas, and that at least 50% of service users benefiting from the capital project are from one or more of those groups.

Programme areas:

  • Alcohol and substance misuse
  • People with disabilities.
  • Disadvantaged minority communities
  • Disadvantaged young people
  • Domestic and sexual violence
  • Older people
  • Homelessness
  • Prisoners and ex-offenders
  • Visual impairment
