Triangle Trust 1949 Fund Invites Applications
Not-for-profit organisations based and working in the UK to rehabilitate offenders and ex-offenders have until 6 November to submit an application for a Development Grant.
The Triangle Trust provides funding through its Development Grants programme twice a year to charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies in the UK whose primary purpose is to support the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders (autumn round) and unpaid carers (spring round).
Development Grants provide funds towards any costs incurred by the applicant in undertaking its core business so that sustainable income sources can be developed and the organisation’s income will not be reduced when the grant comes to an end.
Grants are available for up to £40,000 or 50% current annual income, whichever is lowest, per year for three years. The amount requested each year is expected to taper down as applicants develop other sustainable income streams.
To be eligible for the autumn round, applicants must:
- Be based and work in the UK with a UK office.
- Have a constitution whose primary purpose is to support the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders.
- Have an income of less than £2 million for the most recent financial year. (Priority will be given to smaller organisations).
- Show in their application how they have expertise and a history of working with or offenders or ex-offenders.
- Have some volunteer input.
Applicants may be involved in providing direct practical support work, research projects or policy or campaigning work relevant to the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders.
New organisation without a first year’s accounts may apply as long as they can submit their most recent set of management accounts along with their predicted expenditure and income forecast.
Please note that organisations with a broader remit running a project to support the rehabilitation of offenders or ex-offenders are not eligible to apply.
The deadline for applications is 6 November 2014 (noon).
There is a two-stage application process. Groups will be notified whether or not they have been shortlisted by the end of December 2014. Shortlisted applicants can then expect a visit from The Triangle Trust in early 2015 at which time they will have to present their strategic plan. They will be notified of the final decision by the end of March 2014 and must start the work by July 2015.
