Funding to Support LGBT+ Communities During COVID-19 Pandemic

Thursday, 27 August, 2020

Non-profit LGBT+ organisations across the UK are being invited to apply to a new fund, worth £350,000. Small Grants of up to £5,000 and Main Grants of between £5,001 and £15,000 are available.

The LGBT+ Futures Fund will support ongoing work, core costs and additional work which strengthens the position of LGBT+ organisations and their ability to respond to community needs arising during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants can be used for:

  • Delivering a range of wellbeing services and/or offering targeted specialist services.
  • Providing shelter and accommodation services to people experiencing homelessness.
  • Supporting organisations to adapt and respond to the pandemic.
  • Offering formal training and skills development and educational coaching.
  • Providing essential delivery services ensuring the practical needs of vulnerable individuals and families are met.
  • Providing specialist and general information, guidance and advice online or by telephone.
  • Supporting community and volunteer-led resilience and response coordination to the pandemic.

There is particular interest in projects supporting those LGBT+ people and communities that are underrepresented and/or subject to higher levels of marginalisation.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until all the funding is awarded.
