Tudor Trust Grants for small community-led groups


Grants of at least £10,000 are available to smaller community-led groups that support people at the margins of society.

“We want to support smaller groups, embedded in their communities, which work directly with people who are on the edges of mainstream society in ways which encourage inclusion, integration and independence.”

The Trust is particularly interested in supporting work that develops and promotes the social connections and relationships which make such an important contribution to the well-being and quality of life of individuals, and which strengthens communities.

Tudor’s trustees are also particularly interested in supporting smaller, under-resourced organisations. The Trust states that they are “much more likely to fund groups with an annual income of less than £1 million.”

Many of their grants given are towards core funding: funding which goes towards the core costs of running an organisation, including salaries, overheads and day-to-day running costs. However,  they can also provide project grants, capital grants for buildings or equipment and grants to help strengthen your organisation.

There is no maximum or minimum grant, though in practice it is unusual for us to make a grant of less than £10,000.
