LGBT+ Futures Fund

The LGBT+ Futures Fund is now closed.

Thank you to all organisations that applied. Results of the second round of funding will be released by the end of June.

Background

Consortium is working with the Government Equalities Office (GEO) to setup, manage and distribute small grants to LGBT+ organisations across England. The funding available will look to fund locally based interventions that support and increase the visibility of diverse LGBT+ people & communities, those focussed on sustainability, and those that address the findings of the GEO's National LGBT Survey. This small grants programme will run until March 2020. 

Alongside our small grants programme we also run a free Skills Development and Training programme, in partnership with some of our Members, for LGBT+ organisations so they can build new skills, knowledge and expertise to help their organisation become more sustainable for the future. This programme is open to both applicants and non-applicants and those organisations who don't feel quite ready to put in an application can seek 1:1 support and access a range of resources to get 'fit for funding'. 

Summary information is provided on the grants programme below but all applicants are strongly encouraged to read the Guidance document before submitting an application. 

What We Will Fund

  • Interventions that support and increase the visibility of LGBT+ people, addressing the findings from the GEO's National LGBT Survey
  • LGBT+ organisations who are working to become more sustainable and looking to strengthen their organisation strategically
  • LGBT+ organisations with creative solutions to reach and include more marginalised and underrepresented LGBT+ people and communities across their organisations
  • LGBT+ organisations who are looking to collaborate on an idea to help strengthen their organisations and the LGBT+ sector
  • Applications from LGBT+ youth and Pride organisations are especially welcome. Please note: we will not pay recurring costs e.g. general Pride event costs, we want to see new element which fit the criteria of the Fund.
