Grants for improving lives

Grants from £10,000 to £1 million to help people facing challenging circumstances.

Many people experience challenges at some point in their lives. We want to support activity that helps them overcome these difficulties and become more resilient.

We want to fund activity that means people:

  • are better able to identify ways to take control over their lives and build resilience
  • are able to shape the activities and services they use to better meet their needs
  • have more access to support and opportunities to improve their lives.

For applications up to £150,000 you only need to fill in a single application form.
If you are applying for between £150,000 and £1 million there is a different form and two stage process.
