Charities can now apply for grants to deliver projects next Spring which improve employment prospects for people experiencing deprivation across the UK.
The Thomas Wall Trust is accepting applications from UK charities with a turnover of £10,000 to £500,000 that have been registered with the Charity Commission for at least three years.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available, and the Trust can support annual repeat funding for up to three years.
The funding 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.
Priority will be given to:
- Match funded projects.
- Charities that can provide compelling evidence of impact.
- Charities working with collaborative networks.
- Self-sustainable projects, with a view to becoming less reliant on grants in the future.
There is particular interest in hearing from groups supporting people experiencing multiple deprivation or major hurdles to employment including women, people with physical, mental or learning disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers.
There is a two-stage application process.
The deadline for stage one applications is 8 January 2024 for consideration in March 2024.
