Lloyds Bank Foundation Opens £1m Fund for Charities Tackling Abuse

Mon 8 Aug 2016

The Lloyds Bank Foundation has launched a £1m grants programme called 'Transform' for charities tackling domestic and sexual abuse.

The programme, will offer grants of up to £100,000 over two years to 10 charities with the intention of strengthening policy, practice and infrastructure in the domestic and sexual abuse sector.

To be eligible, charities must have an income of between £25,000 and £2m a year and partnership bids are being encouraged.

According to the foundation, applicants will have to demonstrate effective strategies in a number of different areas, such as the ability to influence domestic and sexual abuse policy at a local, regional or national level.

Other criteria include the ability to build an evidence base about effective domestic and sexual abuse interventions and the facility to develop and support effective partnerships within and across sectors.

Grants will not be awarded for service delivery or to support a charity’s development, but proposals that show the potential to share learning and have a clear plan to achieve this aim will be prioritised, the foundation said.

The deadline for applications for the grants programme is 30 September 2016, with shortlisted charities notified by late October.
