The four independent Lloyds TSB Foundations, which include England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, are amongst the largest grant-making trusts in the UK and support charities that help disadvantaged and disabled people to play a fuller role in the community.With a mission to help small grass-roots charities, the Foundation targets its funding to social and community needs, and education and training. Working with small community-based charities means that relatively small sums can make a huge difference and in 2003 the average regional grant was £5,760 (£14,720 at an England and Wales-wide level). The Foundation also believes it is vital to support day-to-day running costs to ensure charities’ short-term survival and long-term sustainability and in 2003, 65% of grants by value were for core costs.
