Community Fund creates £32m pot for disadvantaged

The Community Fund has launched a £31.6 million strategic grants programme aimed at groups working with society's most disadvantaged people.

The programme is the funding body's largest grant pot. To qualify, bidders have to work, or seek to work, in three or more regions, with more than one UK country, or across the UK as a whole.

The grants programme will focus on the fund's six priority areas: children and young people, older people and their carers, BME communities, refugees and asylum seekers, disabled people and their carers, and people who are disadvantaged because they are living in areas of economic decline.

Richard Gutch, the fund's director, said: "We are actively seeking flagship projects which use new and innovative approaches to tackling disadvantage.

We also want to fund organisations that actively work with others, share their results, and draw on the experience of the funded projects to influence policy-makers."
