Localgiving- Magic Little Grants


We are delighted to announce that Magic Little Grants 2019 is now live!

Thanks to an award of £550,000 from Postcode Community Trust, funded by players of People's Postcode Lottery, Local giving are able to provide more grants than ever before.

This fund gives local charities and community groups the chance to apply online for a £500 grant to deliver projects across Great Britain that encourage people to be physically active. Successful projects will support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants.

With a simple 10-minute application process, the Magic Little Grants fund reduces the work required for local organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services.

  • Applicants must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Preference will be given to projects that encourage social cohesion and help vulnerable people to overcome barriers to participation in physical activities.

Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.

The deadline for applications for Magic Little Grants 2019 is midnight on 30th November 2019.

As well as receiving a Magic Little Grant, successful organisations that are new to Localgiving will also be given a free annual membership with Localgiving worth £96.This membership gives them access to all of Localgiving's wider online fundraising services, such as regular fundraising campaigns and training.s





The Waterloo Foundation

Although the funding priorities for TWF are the Environment and World Development, the original founders of the Foundation live and work in Wales. To support our local community, they have allocated funding to three important issues: 

  • Caring Wales
  • Working Wales
  • Educating Wales



The Caring Wales funding programme is open to applications from organisations working to support unpaid carers, especially young carers and carers of people with the conditions prioritised in the Child Development research fund. The strongest applications to this fund have been from organisations that:

  • provide a range of carer-centered support services,
  • demonstrate strong links with other projects, interventions, organisations and services to ensure a holistic family support approach,
  • are outcomes-focused, and can measure and evaluate changes to their beneficiaries' circumstances using meaningful monitoring methods
  • ensure participation of service users in shaping their services,
  • reach a substantial number of individuals, whilst:
  • proactively identifying and working with the most isolated and vulnerable carers, and
  • offering sufficient and meaningful levels of support. 



The Waterloo Foundation provide funding to a small number of targeted initiatives that help people set up businesses or, in some cases, help people gain permanent paid employment. 



The Waterloo Foundation emphatically believes that "our education today is our economy tomorrow" and children must be afforded every opportunity to fulfil their potential during their school years. Therefore applications will be considered under the Educating Wales Fund if they address one (or both) of the following priorities:

  • The attainment gap in Wales
  • Increasing the STEM skills of young people in Wales

 As such, The Waterloo Foundation supports programmes that aim to inspire young people from diverse backgrounds to pursue further qualifications or careers in STEM subjects.
Although there is no upper or lower limit to our support, awards made under the Caring Wales programme typically range from £5,000 - £25,000.
