Funding for community arts

The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund Opens for Applications (UK)
The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund is currently inviting applications from
charity organisations to support projects that support; carers;
community arts and education; disability; older people; poverty;
integration and rehabilitation. Grants are normally in the range of
£1,000 and £10,000. Successful projects will either maintain an open,
inclusive society or promote integration (or reintegration) of
individuals or groups into society. Preference will be given to:
* smaller charities
* charities which serve a locality or region of the UK, rather than
national charities
* causes which find it more difficult to raise funds from the
general public.
Previous projects supported include:
* St Wilfrid's Drop in Centre in Sheffield which provides the
vulnerable and isolated support and a sense of belonging as well as
education to enable some clients to go on to paid employment.
* The Bucks Association for the Care of Offenders (BACO) which aims
to help offenders in the Bucks area to break their cycle of criminal
behaviour and integrate back into society.
The next application deadline is the 12th August 2011.
