The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales enables charities to break or prevent the cycle of disadvantage.

We believe that people have the remarkable capacity to overcome the barriers of disadvantage if given the right support and opportunities.

So we focus on supporting charities that help people facing multiple disadvantage to move forward with their lives. By providing both financial and practical support, we aim to deliver lasting positive change.

As one of the leading corporate Foundations we seek to deliver changes to practice and policy through our grant making. We understand the challenges charities face, and use our sector experience and knowledge to offer long term funding for core and development costs. We work with charities on the ground to tackle disadvantage and understand their work, helping us improve the impact and quality of what we do. Through this process we support charities through a journey of development, allowing them to concentrate on those most in need.

By building partnerships and championing the role and impact of small and medium charities, we aim to become a trusted and respected voice both nationally and regionally. We commit our time, sector expertise and financial backing – made possible by the long term secure support from Lloyds Banking Group allowing charities the opportunity to succeed. The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales is one of the UK’s leading independent grant making trusts.

We are proud to invest in charities helping to break disadvantage and create better lives.
