What we fund

What we fund

We fund charities helping to create a better future for the people of Merseyside

To be considered for funding your activity must meet one of our priority themes:

 Creating opportunities for people to contribute to their community

Enabling people to overcome barriers

Widening access to education for all ages

Increasing engagement in the arts for excluded groups

Encouraging care of the natural or built environment

What we look for when awarding grants

Grass roots organisations making a difference in some of the hardest areas in the region

 Programmes that make Merseyside a better place to live

Activities promoting self-help and resilience

New approaches to persistent or difficult challenges

Projects that are well-planned and offer realistic solutions

Grants start from £1,000 with the majority falling between £5,000-£10,000. These are normally for one year. In special cases, we can consider a limited number of grants spread over the life of multi-year projects for charities previously funded; likewise funding of up to £20,000 to a Merseyside project of major importance.
