Registered charities, social enterprises and constituted charitable groups can apply for £20,000 – £60,000 to help people in the UK when other sources of support have failed, are inappropriate, or are simply not available.
Henry Smith Charity’s three main priorities are as follows:
- Increasing resilience – empowering people, encouraging integration and personal independence, helping people to recover and move on.
- Creating opportunities and life chances – raising aspiration – equipping people with new skills, unlocking and enabling potential, and providing the means to improve life circumstances.
- Empowering communities – strengthening and connecting communities and making people feel valued, providing opportunities for social connections and relationships, encouraging participation and inclusion.
The funding is for revenue costs and direct service delivery, which may include salaries, overheads and day-to-day running costs or be for a specific project that falls within the Charity’s remit.
