The Clothworkers’ Foundation makes grants to charities registered in the UK, CICs, and other UK not-for-profit organisations including special schools through its Open Programme. The grants are for capital projects such as buildings, equipment and vehicles and should fit with one or more of the Foundation’s programme areas:

  • Alcohol and substance misuse
  • Disadvantaged minority communities
  • Disadvantaged young people
  • Domestic and sexual abuse
  • Homelessness
  • Older people
  • People with disabilities
  • Prisoners and ex-offenders

At least 50% of service users benefiting from the capital project should be from one or more of these groups.

Grants are made to large and small projects. Applicants are asked not to request a specific amount from the Clothworkers’ Foundation: projects over £100,000 may receive around 10% of the balance to be raised; smaller projects with a balance of less than £10,000 may receive between 50% and 100% of the balance.
