The Charity Finance Group and the Shelia McKechnie Foundation are among seven organisations that will share £1.3m in grants from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

The grants, which come from latest round of the PHF’s Backbone Fund, are aimed at helping organisations become more sustainable.

The funding, which lasts five years, will help to resource core activities, fund essential roles in the organisations receiving the grants and provide a reliable source of funding to the grantees.

Organisations to be funded and the amounts they will receive

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation said in a statement that the grants "are part of a broader commitment from PHF to fund in a way that allows organisations to reflect, learn, pursue change and focus on impact ambitions".

Last year it awarded £1.5m to seven organisations through the fund.

Moira Sinclair, chief executive of the foundation, said: "The Backbone Fund responds to the need for long-term and flexible support in the voluntary sector, particularly among industry bodies that are so often hard hit by cuts to statutory funding.

"This commitment will allow organisations that support the health of the sectors we fund to get on with what they do best: building connections and relationships, future-proofing and speaking out on behalf of the people and organisations they support."
