Our Enhance programme provides a range of non-financial, tailored support to help charities we fund thrive. 

We help charities that we fund identify what (if any) support might help them work more effectively. When they've agreed on a specific area for development, have a clear plan of activities in mind to address this, and a clear idea of what they hope to achieve, they'll be offered support in one or more of the following ways:

Charity Mentoring 

All charities supported by the Foundation are eligible for support from a Charity Mentor from Lloyds Banking Group. Charities who apply for a mentor are typically matched with a banking professional local to them and are encouraged to forge a relationship that works for them, so that both parties have an opportunity to share skills, gain expertise and have a fresh perspective on their working practice.

Watch Charity Mentoring in action and ask your Grant Manager if you'd like to be matched. 

Ready Made Resources 

All charities have access to tailor-made toolkits to support them with HR management and other issues. 

Networking Opportunities 

Charities are given opportunities to connect with other charity professionals in your area through regional learning networks. Ask your Grant Manager what's available in your area. 

Note: Enhance support is not a condition of any grant award and if agreed, will be tailored to the specific needs of the charity.
