Lloyds Bank Foundation - Racial Equity Programme

This programme will open for applications on 27 March 2024


This programme is aimed at registered charities and CICs which are led by and working with people who are experiencing economic inequity because of their race or ethnicity.

Your organisation will be led by the communities you serve, working with people over the long term to help them break free from poverty and achieve their potential. Your organisation will be directly delivering services that help people from racially minoritised communities experiencing significant economic disadvantage.

We believe small, local and specialist organisations play a unique role in helping people rebuild their lives. Their size and deep understanding of the complex issues people face make them best placed to reach, engage and support people and make an impact.

We want to ensure that the small and local organisations we support can thrive beyond the lifetime of our funding. Our programmes combine unrestricted funding with a breadth of tailored support aimed at helping strengthen charities and build the knowledge, skills and capabilities of staff and trustees. Therefore, this programme is for charities that prioritise their development. Learn more about what to expect from working with us in this way.

If you’re awarded a grant under this programme you will receive £75,000, over three years (£25,000 per year). The grants will be unrestricted, meaning that you will be able to use the grant to support any costs that further your organisation’s social purpose.

The LCVS Community Impact Fund (CIF) is now open.

It will close on Friday 12 April 2024 at 5 PM.

The fund opened for applications on Wednesday 13 March 2024 at 9.30 AM.

Please note: We have recently reviewed and updated the guidance and eligibility criteria for applying for CIF. If your organisation has received CIF in previous rounds, it may no longer be eligible to apply for a grant during this round. Please ensure you carefully read the updated guidance document for applying for this round.

For any enquiries, please contact Steph Gregory at or Becky Lazare at



Thursday 21 March 2024 from 11 AM – 12 PM | Online via Zoom

The LCVS Grants Team will be delivering a CIF workshop via Zoom to go through the eligibility criteria and answer any questions you may have.

This workshop will be particularly useful if this is the first time your organisation has applied for CIF.

Eligible organisations can apply for grants of up to £3,000 maximum, for projects that meet one or more of our four main priority areas:

  • Health

  • Education

  • Income stability

  • Arts and Culture.

Applications will be assessed on the impact that the project will have on the lives of those who benefit.

Applications will be assessed on the impact that the project will have on the lives of those who benefit. We’re looking for projects that help make a change for those most in need. For this round, we are particularly interested in funding projects that support people and communities to combat the problems caused by the current cost of living crisis. Based upon the high level of applications in previous years, we can only fund projects that align with our priority areas. Unfortunately, it’s for this reason that some good projects won’t be considered.
