About Us

We’re more than just a funder – we work in partnership with small and local charities. We are committed to funding core costs, providing development support and influencing policy. Through this partnership, we help charities help more people dealing with complex social issues and help charities to be stronger and improve wider policy and practice.

charities to be funded at any one time

A funder who gets what we do as a grassroots charity is really refreshing. It’s not about education or employment from day one, it’s about keeping those women surviving life – and I don’t know how we’d do it without Lloyds Bank Foundation.

Some of our success stories

One of the things that has been extraordinary about the Foundation is the extra non-financial support that it provides alongside the grant. The mentoring, business planning and training with people outside of our organisation have been amazing – we’d never be able to afford this level of expertise.
