LGBT+ Futures: National Emergencies Trust Fund

The funding is available to address the additional needs of LGBT+ people and communities most adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and to support and strengthen LGBT+ organisations that have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Who can apply?

Any UK based non-profit group, organisation or project that works with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans + (LGBT+) people is welcome to apply.

Organisations applying must have Objects in their constitution specifically outlining their support of LGBT+ communities and/or be clear in their public facing materials (e.g. website) that their existing work proactively engages LGBT+ people or communities. 

You do not need to be a Member of Consortium to be eligible to apply. 

Previous Futures Fund grantees and current Intersections Fund grant holders are eligible to apply 

Organisations must be fit for funding. This means having good governance, appropriate financial management in place and high standards of safeguarding for staff, volunteers and those using their support or services. As part of our application checks organisations are required to show they have the following: 

  • A governing document e.g. a constitution 
  • Two or more unrelated trustees, board members or directors
  • Able to provide a correspondence address
  • Relevant Safeguarding & Diversity & Inclusion Policies
  • A bank account in the organisations name, or be able to nominate a registered charity that will hold a grant in trust for them

If your organisation needs support to ensure that you have the correct governance, policies and procedures in place, get in touch with our grants team on 020 7064 6500 or email grants@consortium.lgbt 

We want this funding to get where it is most needed. If your organisation needs additional support or guidance to be able to submit an application please get in touch - we are here to help.
