Lloyds Bank Foundation to close its Community Programme (England & Wales)

The Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has announced the existing Community Programme will close to applications on the 14th February 2014.
The Foundation will replace the Community programme with a range of new funding streams that will continue to provide grants to registered charities that improve the lives of disadvantaged people. The following programmes will be available:
• Invest – a flexible, long term core funding programme for organisations delivering clear, targeted outcomes for disadvantaged people.
• Enable – a smaller and shorter grants programme for organisations that have identified clear development needs.
• Enhance – a programme working alongside the Invest or Enable programme providing an option of tailored in-kind support to strengthen and develop charities’ effectiveness.
Further information about the new programmes is expected to be published on 2nd April 2014 when they will open to applications.
