We welcomed the Churchhouse Fund to our family of fundholders at Foundation Derbyshire late last year.
Set up by a Derby Family the Fund will meet annually to award grants to projects which really chime with the donor’s values. The family bring with them a wealth of experience from their work and volunteering roles, which they have used to shape their Fund criteria.
The Fund, as a starting point, is looking to help people into work, training or volunteering. They are also keen to support those who may find entering or re-entering the world of work difficult due to challenges, confidence or vulnerabilities.
Like our Starby Fund, the Churchhouse Fund is interested in helping homeless communities or those at risk of homelessness.
It was a pleasure to facilitate their first panel meeting in November 2022 and we look forward to seeing the Fund mature and support even more great groups throughout the coming years,
