Lloyds Bank Foundation is inviting proposals as part of their £2 million investment over three years in a Criminal Justice National Programme. The programme is focused on influencing positive change in policy and practice in the criminal justice system. They are currently accepting expressions of interest for funding of influencing activities. 

They already partner with approximately 50 charities across England and Wales which help people in the criminal justice system, through core funding and organisational development. Our Criminal Justice National Programme is in addition to this existing support and is focused on influencing positive change in policy and practice.

The programme want to have a particular impact around:

  • supporting the specialist voluntary sector to operate, become stronger and to speak up within the current very difficult prisons and probation environment;
  • improving the policy and operating environment for smaller charities, particularly by seeking to influence the new probation system;
  • influencing work further “upstream” in the criminal justice system to help divert and reduce people entering prison in the first place;
  • influencing support for specific demographic groups within the criminal justice system.

They are currently accepting expressions of interest for influencing activity which:

  • Aims to meet one of the objectives above, with a clearly defined influencing goal;
  • Seeks to have a positive impact on the sector (either at a local, regional or national level) within one - five years;
  • Adopts one of the following approaches:
    • Growing networks and partnerships
    • Building the evidence base and increasing knowledge
    • Promoting change through communications and policy work
    • Influencing the practice of others in the criminal justice system.
