Clothworkers' Foundation

The Clothworkers’ Foundation improves the lives of people and communities – particularly those facing disadvantage and marginalisation – through grant making.

Open Grants Programme accepts applications from UK registered charities or not-for-profits and who meet the eligibility criteria, for funding towards capital projects. The work of the organisation must fit within one or more of the specified programme areas.

Proactive Grants Programme  funds more strategical funding, and to develop a greater level of knowledge and understanding of specific sectors.  Please note that the Proactive Grants Programme is not open to applications.

In order to meet the eligibility criteria, you must be able to demonstrate that the work of your organisation fits within one or more of the 10 programme areas, and that at least 50% of service users benefiting from the capital project are from one or more of those groups.
