The Local Communities programme aims to empower local people, enabling them to create lasting change in their communities. Projects should be run by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community.Read More

We are an independent charitable trust improving the quality of life of people in our community by investing and distributing funds on behalf of a wide range of donors. Since 1996 our donors have invested over £20 million of charitable funding directly into Essex, Southend and Thurrock making it a great place to live, work, learn and grow.
As one of the UK’s leading community foundations we have the expertise and local knowledge to help our donors support the local causes and charities they care about and make an impact through their giving.
Here you will read about all aspects of our work; how we help families, individuals, companies and public agencies to channel their charitable giving locally and how we support voluntary and community organisations to secure the funding they need to carry out their vital work.
We are always happy to talk to you about what we do so please call us on 01245 355947 or contact us.
