The Santander Foundation has launched a new £1.23 million fund.
The new UK-wide scheme follows on the heels of Santanders pilot scheme for the South West of England which opened last month.
Local UK-registered charities that can now apply for grants of up to £5,000. The funding can help with the cost of salaries, equipment or materials for projects that assist disadvantaged people within the UK. Projects must be local.
Applications can be made by a simple nomination form which can be picked up at any Santander local branch.
Nomination forms may be submitted at any time. Entries will be considered regionally and successful charities will be notified within two months of submitting their nomination.
