Previously known as the bet365 Foundation, the Denise Coates Foundation provides grants to other registered charities in England.

The principal activity of the Foundation is to provide funding to charities that will use the resources to enrich the lives of those that they exist to support.

In particular, the Foundation provides funding for charitable projects that address the following areas:

Neighbourhood Planning Grants and Support Programme

Grants and technical support are available for town and parish councils, neighbourhood forums and prospective neighbourhood forums to draw up a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order in England.

The Government has allocated over £30 million between 2018 - 2022 to support the development of neighbourhood plans or neighbourhood development orders.

The following support is available:

The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis

The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund is a new fund to tackle food poverty. We have seen a significant rise over recent years in the coalfields of the number of projects providing food to those who cannot afford it. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated this problem with more people being referred to food banks, and tens of thousands of children skipping meals due to family income being too low.

COVID 19 Support Fund

Closing date: 30 October 2020

A huge, co-ordinated effort across community and voluntary groups across our county is making a huge difference to isolated and vulnerable people, and those in most need of help. Local people are also stepping up to put projects together make a difference.

Now the new COVID-19 Support Fund has been set up to help keep this happening. It’s rapid, flexible funding to support communities to do their bit and to make sure that the voluntary sector continues to thrive now and after the crisis.
