Grant Funding 2020/21



We are pleased to announce that applications are invited from organisations within the United Utilities Trust Fund area for revenue project funding.

Who can apply for organisational project funding?

You can make an application if your organisation can deliver services within the United Utilities Trust Fund geographical area and is a registered charity, voluntary organisation, not for profit organisation or public benefit entity.

What types of projects do we want to fund?

We wish to support partnership projects where organisations will share a funded resource to provide peripatetic money advice services across the communities or groups they serve.

To enhance the overall value of the programme we encourage applications that involve match funding or contributions towards project delivery.

These contributions may include, funding already secured or in-kind contributions made by your organisation such as; general overheads, capital purchases, management, supervision and administrational costs and time of volunteers providing any support.

Your project must also:

  • Enhance and develop the provision of money advice/financial literacy services to individuals within the United Utilities Trust Fund geographical area.
  • Demonstrate that it will provide a benefit to customers of United Utilities who are in hardship and unable to meet the costs of water charges.
  • Support a ‘deprived community’ where a significant majority of the residents live in the worst 10% Lower Super Output Areas or Wards in England and/or where there is a high incidence of debt.

How much can I apply for?

Up to a maximum of £32,500.

How long should the project last?

We expect projects to be delivered for a minimum of one year with the potential for projects of excellence being considered for continuation funding if budgets are available.
