Lloyds Bank Foundation Infrastructure Fund

The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has launched a new fund for local/regional infrastructure charities which play the dual role of providing capacity building support for charities and raising the voice of small and local charity members.

16 grants are available of £30,000 each for core funding as part of our response to Covid-19 but, due to the small number, there are strict geographic restrictions.

The funding aims to provide some space for infrastructure organisations to reflect and adapt to the new environment, through their advocacy work but also developing their financial sustainability.

25% of the funding for infrastructure is ring-fenced for local/regional infrastructure organisations focused on supporting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led charities, recognising the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on these communities and the years of underfunding for infrastructure in the sector.
