What is the focus of the fund: The fund can consider a wide range of community projects from organisations based within Sefton or West Lancashire. As a result of the COVID pandemic and the impact it has had on our mental health the FPC Foundation wishes to support projects that improve our mental wellbeing and help people to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
How much is available: Grants of up to £2500
Who can apply: Registered charities, community groups with a constitution or set of rules in the group’s name, social enterprises
Which areas are covered: Sefton and West Lancashire (with priority given to groups working in the Ainsdale, Southport and Ormskirk areas)
The fund will prioritise the smaller grassroot organisations working in disadvantaged areas where a small grant can make a big difference. The donor would prefer to be the principal funder rather than contribute towards a much larger project.
