Allen Lane Foundation 


The Foundation makes grants to voluntary not-for-profit or- ganisations in the UK for work which benefits groups of peo- ple who are under- represented in UK society such as: offenders and ex-offenders; older people; people experi- encing mental health prob- lems or people experiencing violence or abuse .


Overall, the Foundation wishes to fund work which:





Will make a lasting dif- ference to people's lives rather than simply alleviating the symp- toms or current prob- lems.





Is aimed at reducing isolation, stigma and discrimination.


Encourages or enables under-represented groups to share in the life of the whole com- munity.


One-off grants of between £500 and £15,000 are availa- ble.


Applications may be submit- ted at any time.
