By Kevin Russell | 5 December 2010

Minister for Civil Society, Nick Hurd, announced on 30 November 2010 that the £100million Transition Fund to support charities, voluntary groups and social enterprises affected by public spending reductions was now open for applications.

The fund is available to organisations with a turnover of between £50,000 and £10million, which have derived much of their funding from state sources.

It will provide grants of between £12,500 and £500,000 to enable organisations to make the changes they need to become sustainable in the longer-term.

The Transition Fund is managed by the Big Fund, the non-lottery funding arm of the Big Lottery Fund.

Applications can be made by visiting www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/transitionfund or calling 0330 303 0110.

The application process will close on 21 January 2011.
