For the calendar year 2018, the Trust has a sum of 50,000 to disburse as grants in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.

The Trustees of Cicely Northcote Trust invites bids from voluntary/community bodies, new and well established, for grants in the region of £5,000 or up to £10,000, for innovative projects in the field of health and social care.

Trustees are keen to fund small, local, imaginative projects which might fall outside criteria set by other larger grant givers. The Trust focuses its support in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and would be happy to be a partner in a joint project.

The Trust believes it to be important that organisations to which grants are given are able to show, during and at the end of the funding period, how their governance and forward planning, will enable their projects (where successful) to be sustained.

Projects could be a one or two year project and in certain cases we may consider grants spread over a maximum of three years.
