The Tudor Trust
Tudor makes grants, and provides other type of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. They particularly want to help smaller, community-led organisations which work directly with people who are at the margins of society; organisations which support positive changes in people's lives and in their communities.
As an independent grant maker an important part of their role is to support work which has uncertain outcomes. However, innovation is not the be all and end all: they also recognise the need for sound, practical work which seeks to bring stability and wellbeing into difficult places and situations. They seek to give you the opportunity and practical tools to do the work that you know is needed and they try to offer high levels of support and engagement when this is helpful and appropriate.
Their two-stage application process provides more time to work creatively with applicants who reach the second stage. Through careful listening and constructive dialogue they hope to give you the opportunity to think about your options and develop a proposal which focuses on the real needs of your organisation and the people you are working with.
Tudor doesn't have specific funding programmes. Their focus is on smaller forward-looking groups, led by capable and committed people.
Groups with an annual turnover of less than £1 million are more likely to be funded. However, they sometimes make grants to larger groups, particularly for work which could be influential or which a smaller organisation would not have the capacity to deliver.
You can apply at any time - Tudor makes grants on a rolling programme and there are no deadlines.
