Nationwide Building Society was founded to help people into homes of their own. Its ambition is that everyone should have a place fit to call home stands firm today. Charities, Community Land Trusts and housing co-operatives can apply for grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 to make a change in their local area. Managed by the Community Foundation, applications are reviewed and voted on by a regional Community Board, made up of Nationwide members and colleagues. And it’s more than just money, the funded projects also get community and volunteering support.
