Greggs Foundation Environmental Grants Small: Up to £10,000 4 Mar 2017 Open Using money from the 5p levy on carrier bag sales in Greggs shops, the Greggs Foundation has established the Environmental Grants scheme and is offering both large and small grants for projects which make a difference to local areas, with preference given to projects that involve or benefit people who are disadvantaged. Organisations that are based near a Greggs shop will be given priority. Funding is available for projects that benefit the local environment in a way that will improve people’s lives. All projects must have environmental benefit. Priority will be given to projects that benefit disadvantaged people, which could include the following groups: People with disabilities or suffering chronic illness. People living in a disadvantaged area. People living in an area with poor access to the environment. Voluntary carers. Homeless people. Isolated older people. Other identified need. Grants can cover the purchase of equipment, sessional salary costs, purchase of trees/plants, small capital projects and learning activities.  
Help the Homeless Small: Up to £10,000 15 Mar 2017 Open Help the Homeless provides a grant scheme to support small and medium-sized UK charities that work to help homeless people rebuild their lives, re-enter society and live a normal life. Funding is targeted at projects to find practical ways to help disadvantaged individuals return to the community through training or residential facility provision, rather than merely providing short term shelter. Small and medium-sized registered charities with a turnover of under £1 million per annum can apply for grants of up to £5,000. The scheme will principally fund capital costs, but may consider revenue costs if necessary to the project. Projects must assist individuals in their return to mainstream society, rather than simply offering shelter or other forms of sustenance.
