Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The LCR Pride Foundation is currently accepting applications for the Open grants for projects which aim to bring the LGBT+ Community together.
Projects funded could support breaking down barriers and prejudices the community may face, encourage community cohesion or celebrate diversity.
The Foundation encourages applications from projects that represent the broad diversity of the LGBT+ Community and that support the marginalised groups within it. They will consider each application on its merits in order to ensure that the funding and those benefiting from it are as diverse as possible.
Grants available up to £1000, however applicants are advised it is anticipated that most grants awarded from this fund will be in the region of £500-£750.

Applications are open to any type of organisation or individuals, however please note:
Geography – Funded initiatives must be delivered within and for the benefit of residents of the Liverpool City Region; either as a whole, or for one or more of its constituent boroughs (namely: Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens or Wirral). Organisations with a larger remit will be required to demonstrate that the funding will only be spent within the region.
Applicants under 18 – They are happy to consider applications from those under 18, however the application must be supported by a guarantor organisation that will hold the money on your behalf and support you. If you do not have an organisation to do so, please get in touch to be connected to one of partners.
Appropriate Policies – They expect all applications to include the appropriate policies and risk assessments (where applicable) that are needed for the safe and compliant delivery of the project – such as your Safeguarding policy. You may be asked.
