Charities are non-profit agencies that are either public or private. A charity in the UK must conduct voluntary activities for charitable purposes such as relief of poverty, advancement of religion, advancement of health or the saving of lives, etc. Sometimes charities can have financial difficulties supplying programs for their communities. There are grants for charities in the UK to facilitate providing services and programs to people in need.

The Henry Smith Charity

The Henry Smith Charity is a UK-based organisation that provides grants to small and county organisations. The charity focuses on organisations that provide programs to groups experiencing social and economic hardships such as people with disabilities. Grants are available to programs that are for minority-based initiatives, community service, disabilities, substance abuse, ex-service men and women, family services, health care, homelessness, homosexual/bisexual/ transgender, mental health, older people, prisoners and ex-offenders, prostitution and trafficking, refugees/asylum seekers, and young people. The Smith charity has main grants and small grants. The application process is different depending on which grant you choose to pursue. Details for the grant that you wish to apply for are available at the website where you will be given step-by-step instructions.

Charles Hayward Foundation

The Charles Hayward Foundation is a grant making charitable trust based in the UK. This foundation only grants awards to charities that are registered in the UK. Grants are based on the innovation, excellence and development of new services for programs aimed at the disadvantaged population. Grants are awarded to organisations that provide programs in the areas of heritage and conservation, criminal justice, hospices and older people. There are no official application forms for applying. Applicants are expected to submit in writing an application that contains contact details, description of organisation, description of proposed project, project costs, funds raised and pledged, outstanding shortfall, timetable and accounts. Submit your application to the listed mailing address. You will be notified when your application is received and if any other information is needed. Trustees meet to choose awards only four times a year, so there is often a waiting list for grants.

Grants are awarded based on the submission of a project proposal where the organisation must list a brief history of the charity, description of the project, most recent annual economic report, budget, required funds, and any other information that will help serve your application.
