The Allan Lane Foundation provides grants of between £500 and £15,000 to small voluntary not-for-profit organisations, where the work benefits groups of people who face hostility in UK society today.
The Foundation wishes to fund work which:
- will make a lasting difference to people’s lives;
- is aimed at reducing isolation, stigma and discrimination;
- and encourages or enables unpopular groups to share in the life of the whole community.
Priority groups that the Foundation seeks to support includes:
- Asylum seekers and refugees;
- Gypsies and Travellers;
- LGBTQ communities;
- Migrant communities;
- Offenders and ex-offenders;
- Older people;
- People experiencing mental health problems;
- People experiencing violence or abuse.
The Foundation makes grants for work all over the United Kingdom but not where the beneficiaries of the work all live in London.
Applications can be made at any time.
