About this Funding:

The Leeds Building Society Foundation recently made some notable changes to its funding programme for 2024.

With a focus on supporting those in need of a safe and secure home, the Foundation is now offering grants to UK registered charities for projects which address one or more of the following themes:

  • Financial stress – projects that help with bills or debt stress.
  • Security and refuge – projects that support emergency accommodation.
  • Quality and suitability of housing.
  • Health and wellbeing support for those experiencing homelessness.

Applications are welcome from those who take a Housing First and/or relationship-based approach. Applications should show evidence of:

  • Strength-based practice
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Psychologically-informed environments.

Depending on their annual turnover, UK registered charities can apply for:

  • Small Grants of between £250 and £1,000 to charities anywhere in the UK that have a turnover of less than £1 million. The funding is to be used for projects that support those in need of a safe and secure home. Grants are only for capital expenditure (that is, to purchase items used to directly help those in need).
  • Large Grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 for charities with a turnover of £5 million or less (new turnover limit, previously there was none) who are based in or delivering work in Yorkshire and/or the North East of England. The grant can be a one year grant, or split across two or three years and can support new work or existing work and fund core, project and/or capital costs.

There are four closing dates for applications in 2024.
