Rosa launches Voices from the Frontline fund

Rosa has launched Voices from the Frontline fund, which offers one-year grants of up to £7,000 to support campaigning and influencing work that enables women and girls to use their voice to achieve change.

The deadline for applications is 4 pm on Thursday, 3rd November 2022.

Leeds Building Society Charitable Foundation Grant

UK registered charities working to help those at disadvantage in society can apply to the Leeds Building Society Charitable Foundation for support.

Grants of between £250 – £1,000 are available to cover the costs involved in directly supporting those who are disadvantaged or in vulnerable circumstances, including those with disabilities, affected by homelessness, or with serious health issues.

Previous grants have gone to organisations supporting young people in applying for jobs and towards the purchase of a portable multi-sensory environment, that will turn any room into a sensory room.

Donations usually fund items of “capital expenditure” i.e., items must directly help those in need, rather than contributing to the charity’s running costs.

The Foundation accepts applications from UK registered charities with a turnover of less than £1 million per year.

Applications are reviewed every quarter. The next deadline for applications is the 24th of October 2022.

Sustaining Spaces Fund

National Survivor User Network will be awarding grants to those facilitating community spaces where people with shared identities and experiences come together in support of one another’s wellbeing. This may be in the form of peer support, mutual aid or self-help groups, but is not limited to groups defining themselves in this way. 

The grants are available for amounts ranging from £500 to £1,000 per project, and the closing date is 16th September 2022.

They are looking to fund groups who are led “by and for” members of communities, sharing experiences or identities with those they are creating spaces for. These groups are sometimes called “user-led groups”, but again, groups may not define themselves in that way.
