Lloyds Bank Foundation   

We partner with small and local charities across England and Wales, helping people overcome complex social issues.

We’re an independent charitable trust funded by the profits of Lloyds Banking Group. We partner with small and local charities helping people overcome complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse.

Through long-term funding, developmental support and influencing policy and practice, we help those charities make life-changing impact.

We work in partnership with the charities we fund and others who share our vision. We listen, understand and respond to charities, funding them for longer and providing developmental support to help them grow stronger and more sustainable. We influence policy and practice to help charities thrive in the future and to address the root causes and consequences of complex social issues.
