Our Funding

The Allen Lane Foundation funds small registered charities, voluntary groups, and charitable organisations. 

Over a typical year, we make around 150 grants, to a total value of between £750,000 and £800,000.  

We fund particular beneficiary groups – currently these are:

  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Gypsies and Travellers
  • Migrant communities
  • Offenders and ex-offenders
  • Older people
  • People experiencing mental health problems
  • People experiencing violence or abuse

Our maximum grant is £15,000. 

The average grant size is around £5,000-£6,000.

  
While recognising (and being willing to support) on-going, tried and tested projects, we are also particularly interested in unusual, imaginative or pioneering projects which have perhaps not yet caught the public imagination.
