Grants from £10,001 to £75,000 for projects to help support individuals, families and communities currently experiencing hardship as a result of the cost-of-living increases.

More people than ever before are likely to face severe challenges as a result of the cost-of-living crisis.

Through this programme we aim to fund activity that reduces the impact of, or prevents financial insecurity. We want to fund activity that means people:

  • have more resilience and are more able to identify ways to deal with the impact of increased cost of living in their lives
  • are able to shape activity in their community to address the increased cost-of-living
  • have more access to support and services that will help them to deal with the increased cost of living

Please note we won’t fund mainstream employability support, such as job searches, or payments directly to people for household expenses.

If you would like to talk to us about a project in response to demands and challenges of the rising cost of living, please get in touch at This funding programme is just one of the ways in which we may be able to help.
