Support for charities

We want to help charities to grow stronger and more resilient so they can thrive beyond the lifetime of our funding. We’ll do this by building relationships and working alongside charities, sharing our tools and resources, and drawing on our connections with Lloyds Banking Group and other partners.

Lloyds Banking Group colleagues shared their skills and expertise with small and local charities

For so many small local charities we partner with, it can be difficult to access good resources that can help to develop the skills, capabilities, confidence of staff, volunteers and trustees so the whole charity can strengthen. Often the cost of hiring good consultants and training can be a huge barrier for small charities, it can also be difficult to know where to start.

That’s why we provide a range of capacity building offers for charities we partner with for free. This will be on top of your grant with us or as a standalone offer. Through this support, your charity can build strong foundations so you can become more resilient, helping you beyond the lifetime of our grant.

Learn more about what you can expect from this support and the different types of offers we provide.


But it’s not just the money Lloyds Bank Foundation provides; it’s the whole package that makes such a difference! And it’s not only the amount and type of support we’ve had, it’s the way it has been offered – from a perspective of understanding our needs as a small charity. This combined support enables us to keep our autonomy and care for everybody – we want to stay true to what our experience and expertise tells us is the right thing to do, rather than be dictated to or told who we can and can’t support.
