You can download the bulletin here
In this month's Income Generation bulletin find out about issues making the news from the sector and upcoming funding opportunities and deadlines, including two Southwark opportunities:
The Foundation's grants average £2,000 and is available to assist schools and other groups (also individuals) to purchase equipment for the benefit of children in Southwark, supporting extra curricula activities (e.g. school trips, after school clubs, holiday clubs, uniformed organisations) for children and young people. The Foundation will usually visit organisations to ensure that the scheme is viable but cannot afford to ever fully support a project. They are unable to guarantee continuing support to projects, and for this reason, are unwilling to take responsibility for funding the cost of salaries and administration.Deadline: 17 November 2017
The Near Neighbours programme offers small grants between £250 and £5,000, as seed funding for local groups and organisations who are working to bring together neighbours, to develop relationships across diverse faiths and ethnicities in order to improve their communities. Grants are offered to fund a broad range of work: environmental, social, cultural, artistic and sporting, that furthers the programme’s aims of encouraging social interaction and social action.
Deadline: 17 November 2017
Supports projects that encourage disadvantaged 5 – 19 year olds to keep away from anti-social behaviour and criminal activity, enabling them to fulfil their potential. Most grants are £20,000/£40,000 over 3 years.
Deadline: 21 November 2017
The Fund’s aim is to build the capacity and maximise the potential of voluntary, community organisations to help ensure the continued and improved provision of vital services to support victims of crime and help them cope and recover from their experience. Organisations can apply for between £10,000 and £35,000.
Deadline: 24 November 2017 (5pm)
