Cadent awards £4.8m to charities

In its first year the Cadent Foundation has granted £4.8m to charitable organisations. Funded by gas network Cadent, the Cadent Foundation has awarded 100 new grants to charities and organisations working across the North West, West Midlands, East of England and North London.

Julia Dwyer, director of the Cadent Foundation, said: “Throughout this difficult time the Foundation has remained steadfast in its commitment to deliver against our core objectives, but we’ve also we’ve adapted our strategy to help address areas of greatest need with the launch of our COVID-19 Response Fund. As well as offering grants to small and medium grassroots charities, we’ve also secured national partnerships with organisations such as the Trussell Trust and Groundwork UK that will help drive long term change.”

Next year, the Cadent Foundation is looking to increase the amount of funding awarded, pledging up to £7m to support charities and organisations across its networks. Julia Dwyer added: “As we enter 2021, we remain in uncertain times and the role of the Foundation has never been more important. There is clearly a huge amount of unmet need, and moving forward, we will continue to build on what we have achieved and work with charities and partners to explore how we can use our resources and expertise to maximise the positive impact we can have together.”
