The Henry Smith Charity's Strengthening Communities Fund has identified a relative shortfall in applications and awards to organisations in Bristol. Groups with a turnover up to £500,000 can apply for core funding grants up to £60,000 per year for three years, and develop a long-term relationship with the programme.
The Strengthening Communities Fund invests in organisations that are embedded in their neighbourhoods and working to address a wide range of local priorities to improve connections, wellbeing, resilience and cohesion.
Applications are through a two-stage process with a six month turnaround time and no set deadline for the initial proposal. Further details and all the relevant forms are available from the funder's website.
