Funding to Equip Disadvantaged People with Communication Skills for Employment

UK registered charities that are working to develop communication skills for people who want to improve their employment prospects can apply now for funding in Autumn 2022.

The Thomas Wall Trust is currently accepting applications from charities who have been registered with the Charity Commission for at least three years and with an income of between £100,000 and £500,000.

Grants of up to £5,000 will support a project or running costs for a charity that equips disadvantaged people (aged 18 and over) with the communication skills ready for employment.

Proposals are particularly welcome which target people experiencing multiple deprivation or other groups demonstrably facing major hurdles to employment, such as women, people with physical, mental, or learning disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers.

The Trust will support annual repeat funding for up to three years – subject to satisfactory annual reviews of progress and impact.

There is a two-stage application process.

The deadline for stage one applications is 2 May 2022 for consideration in July.
