Community cohesion

Tŷ Cerdd – Composer in Residence

Tŷ Cerdd’s mission is to promote the music of Wales in all its variety to every community. Their funding aims to help communities use music to enhance their
society activities and to promote musical activity in all parts of Wales.

We are encouraging communities to invest in, and enjoy the excitement of, new music. We have created a fund to enable composers to work with organisations in their communities to create new work. We see composers in communities as an incredibly exciting opportunity. We aim to make new music by supporting our performing groups throughout Wales.

FlightPath Fund

The FlightPath Fund provides financial support to community groups and charities that are committed to improving the opportunities, facilities and services available to local people in the area around Glasgow Airport.

The FlightPath Fund makes donations to those projects within close proximity to the airport, in the areas most affected by the airport’s operation. Typically, these projects are located in the relevant parts of Renfrewshire, East and West Dunbartonshire and Glasgow.

Bags of Help

Bags of Help is Tesco’s local community grant scheme where the money raised from the 5p bag levy in Tesco stores is being used to fund thousands of community projects across the UK. The projects must meet the criteria of promoting community participation in the development and use of outdoor spaces.

Just Act

Just Act, part of the Crowdfunder family, believes in communities working together and provides all the tools and know-how to bring ideas to life.

The Just Act Community Fund will distribute £50,000 to community projects across England and Wales. They'll be adding up to 50% of the funding target to a maximum of £1,000 to volunteer-led community projects that will change lives for the better.

Clore Duffield Main Grants

Whilst the Foundation does occasionally make donations to the health and social care sectors, it should be noted that the majority of its support is directed towards the cultural sector, and in particular to cultural learning and to museum, gallery, heritage and performing arts learning spaces. Support for enhancing Jewish life has largely been directed towards JW3: London's Jewish Community Centre.

The majority of expenditure is for capital projects – only a small number of grants are made each year for programme funding.

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

We accept applications from organisations which are addressing issues in rural areas, and from local or national charities or not-for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than 10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 20%.

Within these overarching themes, we are interested in three areas:

Enable grants

Enable grants are up to a total of £15,000 over one or two years, and can reinvigorate charities through funding organisational improvements, development of areas such as leadership and governance, improved systems and demonstrating outcomes. These developments put charities in a stronger position to better deliver services and attract funding.
