Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales

The Lloyds Bank Foundation invests in charities supporting people to break out of disadvantage at critical points in their lives, and promote practical approaches to lasting change.

To apply you need to be registered as a Charity or a CIO and have income between £25,000 and £1 million in your previous accounts.

Support can be provided through our two grants programmes Enable and Invest, along with an optional support programme (Enhance) for successful applicants. These programmes demonstrate the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to support charities that have the greatest impact upon improving the lives of disadvantaged people and their communities.

The Venue Matlock

A new community-focused space has just opened its doors in Matlock. It’s very accessible from the town centre or via the park, based on Olde Englishe Road, DE4 3RR.

It is available for bookings for any type of social events, clubs, training, workshops, music, dance, theatre, educational groups, church groups, youth groups, toddler groups etc.

Sport England

Sport England has launched two new funds that aim to create exciting new volunteering and social action opportunities. They are interested in working with new partners and finding new ways to inspire and engage a more diverse workforce.

The Opportunity Fund aims to get people from economically disadvantaged communities to volunteer. Sport England want to invest in projects that benefit people facing disadvantage as a result of the community they live in – and that allow them to make a positive contribution to those communities. These could range from inner-city areas with high levels of crime and social exclusion to remote rural areas with few services.

Rural Action Derbyshire is delivering a half-day seminar for anyone who wants to improve their understanding and would be of particular interest to those whose work may bring them into contact with people at greater risk jof suicide and self-harm. The seminars are supported by funding from Public Health at Derbyshire County Council and are free to those living or working in the county.

Better Derbyshire Dales Fund

Just a reminder that the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund will support organisations or specific projects that aim to develop or strengthen communities and/or people’s health and well-being. We are also interested in supporting less popular causes and work that supports disadvantaged and marginalised sections of the community. There is a capital strand that will support village halls, community centres and sports clubs with costs towards improving facilities for their community.
