At the Berkeley Foundation, we believe every young person has enormous potential.
Since 2011 we have been working in partnership with expert organisations to give young people and their communities the tools and resources they need to thrive and be a force for change in the world. For a snapshot of the Foundation’s work in 2020 please have a look at our 10 year review, Our journey so far.
Berkeley Foundation’s Resilience Fund is open to applications between
11 July 2022 – 31 October 2022.
The fund forms part of our new 2030 Strategy and represents a £900,000 investment in strengthening the voluntary sector. It aims to support small to medium sized organisations to invest in organisational development and build resilience for the future. We will distribute grants of up to £30,000, with 10 grants to be awarded each year.
We are looking to support organisations working to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people from Black and Minoritised communities. The focus of our funding will be on building organisational resilience and we are unable to consider applications for programme delivery.
Before you apply, please familiarise yourself with the eligibility criteria and funding guidelines, as we can only fund organisations that meet all eligibility criteria and have applied in line with the guidelines.
Detailed step-by-step guidance on the application form is available here. We recommend you develop your answers before starting the online process, as the application form will need to be completed in one sitting. To help you with this, you can find the application questions in an editable Word document here.
