The Foundation says that for 2010 grants will total £1.8m and this higher level of funding will be sustained for 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The independently run Lloyds TSB Foundations including , England and Wales and the Channel Islands collectively received £28.189m in 2010 (£23.4m in 2009.)

The Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland offers support to organisations focused on delivering social and community needs, and on education and training.

The next closing date for receipt of applications is 9th July 2010
