New Beginnings Fund


We will prioritise local groups, with turnovers of less than £250,000 who can explain the need for additional short to medium term support and how this will add capacity to their current work with local refugees and asylum seekers. Larger organisations with turnovers of up to £1million are not excluded from applying for funding however, priority will be given to smaller locally based organisations in our target areas unless there are no active local refugee / migrant organisations. 

If you are a group working in partnership with other organisations and wish to apply for funding up to £20,000, please click here


Open to any registered UK charity; Charitable Incorporated Organisations; companies limited by guarantee; not for profit registered Community Interest Companies; Constituted community and voluntary sector organisations (you must have a minimum of three unrelated committee members) with a registered bank account. 

Non-constituted groups or collectives may apply if they work in partnership with an eligible organisation. The eligible organisation must be an active partner in the delivery of the work and take responsibility for the management of the grant. 

Grants of up to £10,000 are available for individual groups, or up to £20,000 for bids including partnerships (a lead organisation will need to make the application and meet the eligibility criteria) over a 12 month period. Groups with a turnover of under £250,000 will be prioritised, however larger organisations with a turnover of up to £1m are eligible to apply. 

Groups must be able to evidence an increase in demand for services and how they plan to respond using this funding (this could be an increase in numbers of people using your services, or more enquiries from the public in how they can support you)
