The second year of the Berkeley Foundation’s Resilience Fund launched last week. It is open to applications until 31 October 2022.
Funding guidelines – Resilience Fund 2022-23 – guidelines
We have also recently published a blog on our website about the fund, explaining why we set it up and what we hope to achieve: https://www.berkeleyfoundation.org.uk/news-and-events/our-commitment-to-a-resilient-voluntary-sector
The fund forms part of our new 2030 Strategy and represents a £900,000 investment in strengthening the voluntary sector. It aims to support small to medium sized organisations to invest in organisational development and build resilience for the future –– whether through improved governance, strengthened people power, better financial planning or stronger systems and strategies. We will distribute grants of up to £30,000, with 10 grants to be awarded in 2022-23.
We are looking for applications from small to medium sized charities and CICs who are working to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people from Black and Minoritised communities.
