Santander Foundation: Discovery Grants

 

 

 

 

 

Santander Foundation awards Discovery Grants of up to £5,000 to registered charities and CICs to help disadvantaged people make the most of their future. Grants will support projects that improve people’s knowledge, skills or which provide innovative solutions to overcome social challenges and that fall into one or more of three priorities:

  • Explorer: to improve people’s knowledge, for example, Money Management workshops helping disadvantaged people learn how to budget.
  • Transformer: improving skills and experience, for example, training to help socially isolated people develop skills to get back into work or volunteering opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
  • Changemaker: innovative solutions to social challenges, for example, a new social networking program for visually impaired young people to access the internet.

Examples of project beneficiaries may be people on restricted income or who are rurally isolated or disabled and can include people anywhere in the UK, not just in areas of high deprivation, who are excluded or who face barriers to taking part in day-to-day activities.

Funding is available for small complete local projects lasting up to 12 months and can cover part-time salaries, equipment or materials specific to the project.

There are no deadlines for applications.
