The Spencer Trust Fund working with the LGBT+ community

This new Fund, launched in October 2021, focuses on the LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans) community and is specifically for the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

The Spencer Trust Fund supports projects that will help LGBT+ people to get the right support, advice, opportunities and development to become healthy and active people.

Grants are available for groups who aren't already funded to specifically benefit the LGBT+ community. Your project or activity should benefit a minimum of 70% LGBT+ people.

Grants of up to £400 will usually be allocated, with an additional discretionary £200 available. The board will meet bi-monthly to review applications.

Projects and activities considering the following will be considered:

  1. Addressing isolation in the LGBT+ community in Nottingham, including peer support
  2. Providing safe physical and virtual spaces for LGBT+ people
  3. Support around crisis, hardship and poverty
  4. Campaigning and support for LGBT+ people's voices. To challenge cultural stereotypes, championing Nottingham as a zero tolerance city for homophobia and conversion therapy
  5. Mental Health support
  6. Access to safe and secure housing for LGBT+ people
  7. Support to families
  8. To help LGBT+ people to be heard within mainstream services and organisations
  9. To improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS, including carers, partners and family members.
