LGBT+ Futures Fund Round 2: Now Open!

Friday, May 3, 2019 - 09:00

    Consortium is delighted to announce the launch of a second round of applications for the LGBT+ Futures Fund.

  • Small Grants Programme funded by the Government Equalities Office.
  • Up to £200,000 of funding available in this second and final round.
  • Open to LGBT+ organisations working across England.

The LGBT+ Futures Small Grants Programme offers LGBT+ organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to enable them to work with underrepresented communities and to develop their organisation to become more sustainable.

In this second and final round, there is also a focus on smaller organisations. Consortium has ringfenced £20,000 for distributing in really small grants up to £2,000. Aimed at small, grassroots organisations, there is a shorter, more accessible application form available for those organisations wishing to apply for grants of £2,000 and under.

Paul Roberts OBE, Consortium Chief Executive said:

"We were absolutely bowled over by the response to the first round of funding, with nearly 100 applications received from LGBT+ organisations around the country. However, we remain committed to funding organisations that reach even further into our communities. We want to help ensure LGBT+ organisations of all sizes are strong and inclusive.”

Pride in Sheffield received a grant in Round 1 to improve accessibility and inclusion at the 2019 Pride in Sheffield event for neurodivergent people, BAME people, trans people, older people, people with mobility or mental health issues.

Rosie Strathearn-Brady, Co-Chair of Pride in Sheffield said:

"It's difficult to find the funding to create a truly community driven pride event, particularly for one as large as ours. Getting the Consortium funding means we have resources which we can dedicate to 'small' but important things, resources which we otherwise wouldn't have. We're able to put the Consortium money where our mouth is in terms of ensuring that our pride is accessible for all parts of the community."
