We develop charities

We provide a wide range of developmental support, including training, consultancy and mentoring alongside our funding to strengthen charities. Our grant managers build relationships with charities to help them identify challenges and work with partner organisations to deliver solutions.

Our support builds confidence and expertise among charity leaders, helping them thrive far beyond the life of their grant and equipping them to be stronger and more sustainable.

In addition to our funding, we work with charities to identify their development needs and offer local consultancy support to address these needs. This support could be in one or more of the following areas:

Charity Mentoring

Charity Mentoring harnesses the skills of staff at Lloyds Banking Group to strengthen the small and medium-sized charities we fund, supporting them to become more effective, more robust and more sustainable. Charity Mentors work with charities to address a wide range of needs.

Networking Opportunities

Charity are given opportunities to connect with other local charities through regional peer forums. We’re working in partnership with Action Learning Associates to deliver Action Learning Sets across England and Wales. The sets are a chance for a group of 6-8 charity leaders to come together on a regular basis.At the sessions the group will have the opportunity to share knowledge, learning and expertise as a group, tackle challenges, grow their local networks and gain practical leadership skills during structured time away from daily work demands.

Speak to your Grant Manager to find out what's available in your area.
