Lloyds Bank Foundation

Closing date

Before its funding programme closes on 29 July 2022, Lloyds Bank Foundation is open for applications for funding and support, with grants of £50,000 of unrestricted funding over two years plus additional support to develop your charity.

In 2022, the Foundation is looking to award grants to around 16 small and medium sized (annual turnover of between £25k and £1m) charities in the North East and Cumbria. To manage demand for its grants, it is continuing its policy of setting out 'regional priorities' to make sure that its portfolio of grants is equitably distributed across its complex social issue priority areas and its racial equity strand, so that charities don't spend time in applying if they stand little chance of being awarded funding. Whether your charity can apply to the Foundation this year depends on which local authority you do the majority of your work in, and the complex social issue you are working to address.

In Tyne & Wear, these are the following issues and local authority areas the Foundation is open to applications from

  • Addiction and dependency
  • Refugees and Asylum Seekers (except in North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland)
  • Care leavers
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Homelessness (except in South Tyneside)
  • Mental Health (except in Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland)
  • Offending, prison or community service (except in Newcastle)
  • Racial equity (charities led by and for people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities)
  • Sexual abuse and exploitation
  • Trafficking and modern slavery
  • Young parents
