Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

We support charities with an annual income of £25,000 to £1 million with a strong track record of delivering targeted support to people affected by sexual abuse and exploitation. This includes work targeting female genital mutilation and male survivors of sexual abuse. We offer a two year unrestricted grant of £50,000 alongside a Development Partner to help your charity navigate change.

What We Fund

What do we mean by Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

People who have experienced sexual abuse and exploitation, which may include any of the following:

  • sexual abuse, violence or exploitation;
  • female genital mutilation;
  • adults who experience trauma from historic sexual abuse or exploitation
  • people involved in sex work where it has a significant adverse impact on their lives.

What work we do and don't fund

We fund charities who have a clear track record of delivering targeted support to those affected by any form of sexual abuse or exploitation. This may be the charity’s core work, or configured as a project, but we expect to see a clear rationale for your work. Sexual abuse and/or exploitation can be online, historic, recent or even ongoing.

Charities led by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities

At least 25% of this funding will go to organisations that are led by and for people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities through the Racial Equity complex social issue.

What do we mean by Racial Equity

More than half our your board Trustee Board should self-identify as being Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic community and support people from Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic communities.

’Equity’ involves the promotion of justice and equality of opportunity and outcomes within the procedures, processes and distribution of resources by institutions or systems. Tackling inequity requires an understanding of the underlying or root causes of disparities, both at the point of access and in terms of outcomes, within our society.

If you are led by and support Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities, please visit our Racial Equity page to apply for the COVID Recovery Grant.

How we manage Regional Priorities

We recognise that there are many charities out there who would like and would benefit from our support but, like any funder, we have a limit to the resources we have available. In fact, between now and the end of 2020, we will only be able to make around 140 new grants to small charities in England and Wales, and we know there are many more than that who would be eligible to apply.


We also want to be open and transparent with charities and make best use of their time by being clear in advance which charities and areas we are more likely to fund at any time. Therefore, we have introduced ‘regional priorities’.


Regional Priorities consider local need, the prevalence of eligible small and medium sized charities, the nature of the region and the level of investment the Foundation has given to each complex social issue in that area, including our portfolio of live grants.


Whether your charity can apply to us this year depends on which Local Authority you do the majority of your work in, and the Complex Social Issue you are working to address. We review and update these regional priorities every six months.

We're sorry

We're sorry, we can't recognise the local authority you entered. Please try again. 

 

If you are still experiencing issues give our support team a call on 0370 411 1223 or email us at enquiries@lloydsbankfoundation.org.uk.
