Recognising the imperative to offer support now, panel members of the Bishop of Lincoln’s Social Justice Fund have decided to make grants of up to £2,500 available to those smaller not for profit organisations and Anglican churches faced with increased demand for local services, or that have decided to open their doors during the Winter months to help residents stay engaged, keep safe and warm.
The Purpose of the Fund is to respond to human need and seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation.
The Object of the Fund is to build fair, just, sharing communities for people living in Lincolnshire and to make life more comfortable, ease distress and isolation for those most in need.
- Grant Size: £2,500
Area of Benefit
- The seven District Authorities of the County of Lincolnshire, the unitary authorities of North and North East Lincolnshire, and the boundaries of the Diocese of Lincoln where there may be some variance with civic boundaries.
- Churches involved in social justice work rather than direct mission activity.
- Voluntary or community organisations who should ideally be able to provide evidence they have links to a local C of E church community. Not statutory agencies.
- Locally run and managed. We are unlikely to fund organisations that are local branches/organisations of a larger regional or national organisation.
