Clothworkers Foundation Open Grants Programme

The Clothworkers’ Foundation is a UK-wide funder providing capital grants to organisations improving the lives of people and communities, particularly those facing disadvantage, deprivation, and/or discrimination.

About Clothworkers Foundation Open Grants Programme

The Clothworkers' Open Grants Programme accepts applications for capital projects from UK registered charities or not-for-profits that meet their eligibility criteria. Organisations providing services to beneficiaries that fall within their nine programme areas can apply for support:

  • Alcohol and substance misuse
  • Disadvantaged minority communities
  • Disadvantaged young people
  • Domestic and sexual abuse
  • Homelessness
  • Older people
  • People with disabilities
  • Prisoners and Ex-offenders
  • Visual Impairment

You must be able to demonstrate that the work of your organisation fits within one or more of our programme areas, and that at least 50% of service users benefiting from the capital project are from one or more of those groups.

Grants are awarded towards capital projects which we define as:

  • Buildings: purchase, construction, renovation or refurbishment.
  • Fittings, Fixtures, and Equipment: this includes but is not limited to office equipment/furniture, sports/gym equipment, digital/audio visual equipment, garden equipment, specialist therapeutic (excluding medical) equipment. It does not include equipment for one-off use, or which will be given to service users for personal use on a permanent basis.
  • Vehicles: This includes a minibus, car, caravan, people-carrier, or 4X4. We are unlikely to fund the total cost of a new vehicle and do not provide grants towards vehicle leasing.

We fund both large and small projects. The size of grant awarded will depend on a number of factors including the size of your organisation and the cost and scale of your capital project.
