Financial support is given to a wide range of charities seeking to relieve poverty in its broadest sense, both throughout the UK and overseas. Grant recipients include:
- Organisations, many of them Christian organisations working to express their faith through practical action to help those in need, offering direct support to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society, including:
- the homeless
- the elderly
- former Servicemen and women
- Charities providing practical services to people with physical, mental and learning difficulties and their families/carers. Examples include:
- special schools seeking to develop and expand their facilities in order to enable them to meet the needs of people with increasingly complex disabilities
- those involved in supporting young people with complex needs in the transition into adulthood, providing supported accommodation and opportunities for training/meaningful employment
- those seeking to provide facilities for respite care
- Organisations providing opportunities for training and development to young people, in particular those who are disadvantaged or ‘at risk’.
- Small-scale overseas development projects aiming to build the capacity of local partners to develop long-term sustainable solutions to local problems in countries in the developing world.
