The Trust only offer grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 and only core funding
Grants are normally for a maximum of £3,000 per year and they will fund for up to three years.
Most of their grants are for more than one year because they like to fund ongoing needs.
They will only fund work that focuses on one of their priority groups:
- Elderly people
- Children and young people aged 5 – 25
- People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges
- Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
- Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)
