The Hilden Charitable Fund has been undertaking a programme/funding review and will reopen to receive applications w/c Monday 16th May 2022 until Sunday 3rd July 2022.
The focus of the Fund is on supporting smaller organisations throughout the UK – defined as those with an annual income of under £250,000. Grants awarded will usually be in the range of £5,000 – £7,000 per year for up to two years.
Eligible organisations can apply to support work under two programme strands:
- Asylum Seekers and Refugees
Asylum Seekers and Refugees continue to face hostility, challenge and isolation which prevents them being able to fully integrate into society; and some face considerable levels of poverty due to being unable to work or use their skills. We want to support organisations and projects which provide essential services; which help meet their needs; and which support their integration within the wider community.
- Penal Affairs
Whilst custodial sentences are often very damaging for all of those affected, research by the Prison Reform Trust shows that women are often more greatly impacted, especially where they have children or other caring responsibilities. We want to support work “through the door” where organisations go into prisons with projects and support to help prisoners (especially women) cope and/or maintain family bonds and to be better able to resettle positively when released. Equally we welcome applications for post-release projects which support positive resettlement and a reduction in the likelihood of reoffending.
A third strand to support work in three African countries will be available later in summer 2022.
