In our upcoming Meet the Funder event, Get Grants will be joined by Peter Cunnison from the Lloyds Bank Foundation team to explore their current grant programme 'The Specialist Programme’


The themes covered by this grant are:
• Addiction and dependency on alcohol, drugs and/or gambling
• Asylum seekers and refugees
• Domestic and sexual abuse
• Homeless and vulnerably housed
• Offending, prison or community service
• Sexual exploitation
• Trafficking and modern slavery
• Care leavers


The funding is for organisations supporting people (17 years and older) who are experiencing complex social issues resulting in a significant impact on their lives. As ‘specialist organisations’, applicants need to demonstrate the following:
• In-depth services, rather than short-term or one-off support.
• Holistic and person-centred services.
• Personal plans in the form of written or electronic records of every person being supported, noting progress against activities.

The Lloyds Bank Foundation is an independent charitable trust funded by Lloyds Banking Group. They partner with small and local charities helping people overcome complex social issues. Through funding for core costs, developmental support and influencing policy and practice, the Foundation helps charities make life-changing impact.

The Lloyds Bank Foundation currently support charities with annual incomes of £25,000 to £1m that are helping people to overcome complex social issues. They currently offer unrestricted grant of £50,000 plus access to an additional range of professional development support
