Henry Smith Charity: Improving Lives Grant Programme (UK)

The Henry Smith Charity provides grants of between 20,000 and 60,000 per year for up to three years to charitable organisations that help people when other sources of support have failed, are inappropriate, or are simply not available.
The funding is available to cover running costs, salaries and projects of charitable organisations that can demonstrate a track record of success, and evidence the effectiveness of the work. The funding is available to charities and not-for-profit organisations, including social enterprises in the UK with a turnover of 50,000 - 2mllion (in exceptional circumstances up to 5million). Applications can be submitted at any time and decisions are usually made within 6 months.
 
The Henry Smith Charities runs a number of other grant schemes including:

Grants for small community based organisations working in the most deprived areas of the UK
Small grants for small organisations working with disadvantaged people and communities in eight English counties
Grants towards recreational trips and holidays for groups of children aged 13 and under who are disabled or disadvantaged
Grants to support projects that explicitly promote the Christian faith, helping to grow faith communities and churches.
