Collectively this year, the charities Lloyds Bank Foundation has supported had an impact on no less than 142,000 lives. They made the final year of our four-year strategy 'Breaking Disadvantage, Bettering Lives count', investing £20m in grant funding, capacity building support, and influencing the world in which small charities operate.

The Foundation is proud of what they’ve achieved. As austerity took hold and local infrastructure disappeared, funding for small charities got ever tighter – yet demand for their services rose and became more complex. They realised they  had to do more than stem the funding leak, so they took their investment in the sector upstream, focusing on charities having the deepest impact on those facing complex social issues.
