On Thursday 15 November 2018, the Department for International Development (DFID) announced details (opens in new window to gov.uk website) of further organisations to benefit from the Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF).

This follows an announcement made on 27 July 2018, about Monmouth-based charity, Bees for Development. They secured SCCF funding to deliver a livelihoods project in Ethiopia.

As part of the first funding round of this type, these organisations are being awarded grants from the £4 million available to small UK-registered charities and not-for-profit organisations. The funding will help organisations to support the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world.

See the list of organisations below for full details:

Disability projects

Education projects

Health projects

Livelihoods projects

Social protection projects

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects

More information about each project can be viewed on the SCCF grant holder page of the UK Aid Direct website.

SCCF is a rolling fund and now particularly welcomes applications focused on securing better outcomes for widows, as well as those delivering to the Global Goals. The next review date is Thursday 28 March 2019 at 17:00 (GMT). Learn more in the Small Charities Challenge Fund overview section of the website.
