The Charity Finance Group and the Shelia McKechnie Foundation are among seven organisations that will share £1.3m in grants from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Backbone Fund, which responds to the need for long-term and flexible support in the voluntary sector, particularly among organisations that have been hit by cuts to statutory funding.
The organisations to be funded in the latest round are:
- British Future (£200,000);
- British Youth Council (£200,000);
- Charity Finance Group (£150,000);
- Global Dialogue (£175,000);
- One Dance UK (£200,000);
- Shelia McKechnie Foundation (£200,000); and
- Who Cares? Scotland (£175,000).
The awards are designed to help organisations become more sustainable.
Funding is for up to 5 years and will help to resource core activities, fund essential roles in the organisations receiving the grants and provide a reliable source of funding to the grantees.
