ANNUALREVIEW2012LLOYDS TSB FOUNDATION FOR NORTHERN IRELAND


Cover photo: Ballymena Family and Addicts Support GroupThe Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland isone of four independent Lloyds TSB Foundations, theothers being for England & Wales, Scotland and theChannel Islands. The Foundations were establishedat the time of TSB Group’s flotation in 1985 to preservein a lasting framework the TSB’s traditional role ofcontributing to life in the community.In January 2009, Lloyds TSB Group acquired HBOS resulting inthe enlarged Lloyds Banking Group. Following a far reaching andcomprehensive review of the financial and strategic arrangementswhich underpin our longstanding relationship, a new agreementwas reached.Fixed funding of £1.87 million for the years 2010-2013 was agreed.Annually, this exceeds the average payment received over theprevious three years and the provision of this more stable andsustainable funding arrangement will ensure continued supportfor the most vulnerable in society.The independent Board of Trustees, which meets on five occasionsthroughout the year, agrees on the Foundation’s strategic prioritiesand distributes the funding.CONTENTS01 Chairman’s Report04-0502 Executive Director’s Report06-0703 Grants Overview08-0904 Creating Change10-1305 International grant programme14-1506 THE MATCHED giving Programme16-1707 COLLABORATION GRANTS18-2108 Standard Grant Programme22-3509 COMMUNITY Grant Programme Process36-3710 Trustees of the Foundation38-3911 Trustees’ Statement, Auditors’ Report40-4112 Statement of Financial Activities42


01.Chairman’s reportFor the year ended 31 December 2012I am pleased to introduce this review on the work ofthe Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland insupporting people who are disadvantaged to play afuller role in their local communities.During the year, the Foundation considered a totalof 743 applications for support from charitable andcommunity organisations and were able to assist565 with grants to a sum of £1,865,233. The Foundationis grateful to the Chairman, Directors and staff ofLloyds Banking Group who continue to supply ourfunding thereby demonstrating their focus onbuilding valuable relationships in communities.The Matched Giving Programme which supports LloydsBanking Group’s colleagues’ fundraising and volunteeringefforts continues to grow and this year, we receivedapplications from 172 individuals supporting 71 localcharities to the sum of £63,333 with staff raising anadditional £72,538.Under the Standard Grant and Special InitiativesProgrammes, the Foundation offered grants to 347 bodiestotalling £1,211,642. This programme remains thecornerstone of the Foundation delivering support tosmaller organisations aiding disadvantage and deprivationin our community. Whilst these figures are large, eachapplication is scrutinised thoroughly and challengedthrough the Foundation’s challenge process andBoard appraisal.The Creating Change Programme whilst in the finalphase of support from the Foundation continues toreceive guidance and practical help to assist in theirdevelopment. This has been a truly innovative andsuccessful approach to the capacity building of thesmaller charitable bodies.We were able to continue in our support of theInternational Programme this year with a poolof £104,000. Applications were received from 21organisations and grants were offered to 17 charitieswith international work schedules but a base inNorthern Ireland.Our collaborative ventures with Age NI and theNorthern Ireland Youth Forum have been exceedinglysuccessful and proved a vitally important aspect of ourwork highlighting the understanding, foresight andflexibility the Foundation has in meeting the needs ofcharitable organisations. Support of Giving NorthernIreland in collaboration with The Atlantic Philanthropiesshould also yield impactful results in the growth ofphilanthropy in Northern Ireland.With the allocation of grants comes responsibilityfor monitoring those funds and our Monitoring andEvaluation Committee has developed exceptionallysuccessful strategies for eliciting the required information.A remarkable 100% return of M&E forms has beensuccessfully achieved.The Foundation was delighted to be the regionalwinner of the UK Social Enterprise Awards 2012 in theSocial Enterprise Supporter category celebrating ourcommitment to and encouragement of this sector.Unfortunately, two Trustees resigned during thefinancial year – Angela Colhoun and Carmel McGuckianand we were very grateful for their contribution to theBoard during their service.We are very fortunate in having very talented andcommitted members of staff. I would like to express mythanks to Sandara and her team for their dedication inensuring the Foundation continues to be an efficient,effective and caring organisation. The team are highlyeffective in managing increasing workloads withmaximum efficiency and a genuine passion for thework of the Foundation.Finally, I would like to thank the dedicated Board ofTrustees for the commitment, varied skills and enthusiasmthey bring to the Foundation. In particular, I wouldthank Tony Reynolds, Deputy Chairman, for his generoussupport in time and wisdom – not to mention hisendless energy.We look forward to 2013 and the continuing contributionof the Foundation to the community and the Third Sector.Mrs Paddy BailieChairmanPhoto: Lisburn Downtown centreCHAIRMAN’S REPORT 05


02.Executivedirector’s reportIt is with great pleasure that I present my report for2012 which proved to be another highly successful yearfor the Foundation.I hope that having had the opportunity to reflect on theAnnual Review you will have gained an appreciation ofthe extent of support which the Foundation providesto the voluntary & community sector throughoutNorthern Ireland. The Foundation also works tirelesslywith non-NI based Trusts and Foundations to increasethe availability of funding and our attempts to encouragegreater measurement of impact amongst our fundedorganisations is having positive outcomes in terms ofsecuring additional, much-needed resources.Yet again we have been able to provide significantsupport for the most vulnerable in society and ourfinancial and non-financial contributions have madea significant difference in communities throughoutNorthern Ireland.Over the past year funding was awarded to a totalof 565 organisations, across all of our programmesthroughout Northern Ireland and indeed internationallyas demand for funds continues to grow.We continue to believe very strongly in the need tosupport core costs in order to enable such a largenumber of disadvantaged people to play a much fullerrole in their local communities and are aware of theimpact that modest funding can make. We recognisetoo, however the need for project and programmecosts and our collaborative funding programme hascontinued to develop to address newly emerging needs.As you read through the Annual Review, I hope you willget a flavour for the depth and breadth of theFoundation’s investment in the community. We areconstantly surprised by the desire for change on thepart of individuals who identify inequalities in their localareas and who are determined to make a difference forthose who are often unable to advocate for themselves.It is a privilege to work with the many thousands ofpeople throughout Northern Ireland who are at theforefront of delivering positive change and in a modestway, to be able to support the beneficiaries via themany organisations we are in a position to support.By highlighting each grant we made in 2012, we hopethat other organisations perhaps not familiar withthe Foundation will consider applying for financialassistance, consistent with our overall objective ofsupporting underfunded organisations for the benefitof people who are disadvantaged or disabled.Of course all of this work requires considerable energyand I would like to express particular thanks to MrsPaddy Bailie, the Foundation’s Chairman, for the timeand effort that she puts into the Foundation. As everthe highest levels of governance were adhered to by theBoard of the Foundation and their efforts are greatlyappreciated. The professionalism and enthusiasm of theFoundation’s Officers complemented that of the Board,ensuring that significant levels of funding were madeavailable to those who required it most.With the support of Lloyds Banking Group we havebeen able to effect real and positive change throughoutthis time and we look forward to continuing to do so inthe years ahead.Sandara Kelso-RobbExecutive DirectorPhoto: Alphabet Playgroupexecutive director’s report 07

Ballymena Familyand Addicts Support GroupThe grant went towards the My Life Mattersprogramme for young people at risk ofbecoming involved in risk taking behaviouror young people from families experiencingproblems with addictions. The programme gavethe opportunity for young people to challengethemselves and to help build theirself-esteem and their resilience.Anne Henry, Centre Manager04.creating changeThe Creating Change Grant Programmewas designed by the Foundation inresponse to the sector’s needs. Manysmall charities and community groupshad found life quite difficult withthe reduction in European fundingin recent years and often short termfunding is insufficient if organisationsare to develop strategically and worktowards sustainability. This newprogramme was developed to addressthese issues.19 organisations received £1,880,479 over six yearscommencing in April 2008, which is the first time anindependent funding body in Northern Ireland hasoffered such widespread long term funding to thevoluntary and community sector. The organisations areapproaching the end of their fifth year of funding andsignificant outcomes have been achieved.Through the Creating Change Grant Programmethe Foundation has built strong relationships withthe organisations benefiting from this programme,providing financial and non-financial support includingtraining and networking opportunities to enable themto develop and achieve their full potential. It is envisagedthat this grants-plus approach will strengthen andenergise the remaining 18 organisations which are inreceipt of funding in this pilot programme and that theFoundation’s investment will impact positively uponfuture sustainability of those organisations and thecommunities they are established to serve.The Foundation’s grants-plus approach has enabledall of the Creating Change organisations to avail of thefollowing training programmes:• Monitoring and Evaluation(Tailored to the Creating Change requirements)• Income Generation and Fundraising• Developing a Communication Strategy• Hoping for the Best, Preparing for the Worst –Public Expenditure Cuts• The Tendering Process• Social Return on Investment• Governance• Social Media• Creating a Future: Innovation, Strategy and ChangeThe Programme has been attracting local andinternational interest as funders look to new modelsof engagement with the organisations they wish tosupport and grow.10 Standard grant programme process creating change 11

Thefunding supports our Youth Arts Worker to deliverprojects including the Young Leaders Programme,Event Management, Volunteer Development andYouth Advisory Group. These projects will benefityoung people from the Greater New Lodge andneighbouring communities, some of whom arenot in full time education or employment,as well as those in education.’Anne DelaneyArts Programme andOperations Manager07.CollaborationGrantsIn 2010 the Foundation received anunexpected additional income fromshares held with Lloyds BankingGroup. The Trustees wanted to usethis additional income to carryout additional work on top of theongoing grant programmes. TheTrustees and Officers consideredareas of work where there wasadditional need for support andFour distinct areas were identified:• social economy• lower capacity older peoples’ groups• youth participation• philanthropySocial EconomyLarne Enterprise Development Company- (Ledcom)works along with Invest NI to support new start upsocial economy projects. Only those social economyprojects which have an export element to their workare entitled to financial support from Invest NI. Thecollaboration grant has allowed those start up socialeconomy businesses that have a Northern Ireland onlyremit to apply for a start up grant of up to £3,000 tosupport their work. Applications are only received by theFoundation once the business plan has been reviewedand approved by Ledcom.During 2012 the second year of the programme,15 organisations from across Northern Ireland benefitedfrom this programme to the value of £45,000.The Foundation was awarded Winner of the SocialEnterprise Supporter of the Year Northern Ireland, ofthe Charity Bank Social Enterprise Awards 2012.

The Foundation went on torepresent Northern Ireland in the UK finals.First Steps to Funding - Capacity Building for OlderPeoples’ GroupsThe quality of applications for funding received by theFoundation varies greatly. The Foundation staff agreedthat the sector most in need of additional support inunderstanding funding applications, was the moreinformal older peoples’ groups. These groups tend tobe voluntary run by older people, for older people andmany of the members of the Committees will have hadno previous experience with funding applications andeither miss out on funding due to poor applications orfear of funding applications.AgeNI supported by Community Foundation NI werefunded to deliver a 2 year training programme to reachthese lower capacity older peoples’ groups, to give themas the programme title suggests, their ‘First Steps toFunding’. The partnership was funded £72,905 over2 years to locate, recruit and provide training to thoseharder to reach older peoples’ groups across NorthernIreland. The training would be provided in three stages,and groups could come in depending on their level,1) Preparing and Planning for Small Grants2) Making the Approach – Taking the Fear out of Funding3) Understanding the Grant ApplicationCollaboration Grants 19

Some organisations have fullyestablished, effective youth committees and meaningfulrepresentation on organisational Boards, whereas othershave made only tokenistic efforts to include youngpeople in the management and development of theiryouth organisation.Northern Ireland Youth Forum (NIYF) were funded£71,390 to deliver a one year programme to a minimumof 12 organisations across Northern Ireland, providingbespoke training to staff, volunteers and young people togive them the knowledge and a development structurein how to implement inclusive youth participation intheir organisations. The programme would ensure theculture and operations of the organisations changeto ensure a legacy of youth participation beyond thecurrent staff, volunteers and service users. In addition,NIYF delivered a number of best practice seminarsat the end of the project to youth practitioners todisseminate the learning from the programme.The programme was a great success with 16 youthorganisations benefitting from the expertise andtraining provided by NIYF. An excellent resource,‘Partners Inspiring Youth Participation Power’ wasdeveloped as part of the programme to provide thetools for other youth organisations to truly explore thelevel of youth participation within their organisation.This resource is available on the Foundation’s websitewww.lloydstsbfoundationni.orgThe Development of PhilanthropyIn collaboration with The Atlantic Philanthropies,the Foundation awarded £100,000 to establish anew organisation, Giving Northern Ireland, in orderto develop the ethos of philanthropy in the midst ofdecreasing resources and increasing needs.
