The National Emergencies Trust Consortium for stronger LGBT groups are excited to deliver a new Grants Programme for the diverse organisations that make up the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans + (LGBT+) Sector. Thanks to the National Emergencies Trust, a total funding pot of £350,000 is available to LGBT+ non-profit groups, organisations and projects. The funding is available to address the additional needs of LGBT+ people and communities most adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and to support and strengthen LGBT+ organisations that have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. There are no deadlines for this fund. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until all the funding has been awarded. Please take your time to make a considered and appropriate application which will best support your organisation and community at this time. There is no need to rush to make an application. Funding will be awarded in tranches and we will ensure funding is carried forward to meet the needs of later applicants. We want this funding to get where it is most needed. If your organisation needs additional support or guidance to be able to submit an application we can go through it with you. As the grants are awarded for immediate responses and support to organisations, individuals and communities in need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Grants are for short-term work only and all funds awarded through the programme must be fully spent by 31 May 2021. Further information is available here.
