The Greggs Foundation is a grant making trust which distributes around £1.8 million per year to organisations throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
The Local Community Projects Fund makes grants of up to £2,000 to not for profit organisations with a turnover of less than £300,000 a year who work to reduce the disadvantage of the most deprived people in the community.
All projects must support a community of interest, ie:
- People who are disabled or suffering chronic illness
- Living in poverty
- Voluntary carers
- Homeless people
- Isolated older people
- Other demonstrable significant need.
The Foundation are more likely to make grants to local organisations based near Greggs shops.
The closing date for applications is the 28th February 2019.
Projects previously funded include:
- In 2017 London Wheelchair Rugby Club were awarded £1,500 to buy new equipment.
- West Norfolk Young Carers received a grant in 2016 to take some of their young carers to an Outdoor Adventure Centre to help the carers build confidence and self-belief.
