Grants of min. £5,000 up to max. £20,000 in a single year (or up to £30,000 max. over 3 years) for organisations working in the City of Cambridge to reduce need, hardship or distress of people in need.

This Fund will seek to support applications at the full level of funding requested.

Projects will be looked on more favourably if they can demonstrate one or more of the following:

· A sustainable approach to poverty reduction, which means building long-term capacity and resilience, whilst also relieving short-term need.

· Support for parents and children in need, including early years education.

· Support for particularly disadvantaged and under-served groups (e.g. people who face inequality because of their race or ethnicity; victims/survivors of domestic abuse; refugees and asylum seekers).

· Tangible outcomes that would not be possible without this funding (e.g. delivery of a one-off project which would otherwise not be affordable).
