Nationwide Foundation grant recipients named

Money Advice Plus and Centre for Sustainable Energy are among winners of cash to tackle housing and financial problems

The Nationwide Foundation has given grants totalling £2.3m to eight organisations to tackle poor housing and financial exclusion.

The organisations will each receive between £250,000 and £300,000 over three years under the foundation's Investor Programme.

The programme supports charities that offer financial or housing-related support to people who have suffered domestic abuse, people aged 70 and above and people aged 50 or older who are suffering from dementia, are from a black and minority ethnic group, are facing financial problems, are rurally isolated or are carers of family members who are also older than 50.

The foundation continues to offer its small grants programme, which makes grants of up to £5,000 to charities with annual incomes of less than £500,000.
