The Trust is one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts
The trustees will consider proposals in the field of autistic spectrum disorder. Wherever possible, projects are preferred which include people with ASD in decision-making. The trustees do not usually fund capital projects in this area of grant-making. The trustees do not make grants directly to individuals, or fund pure research.
The Trust also considers proposals in the field of disability, violence and access to justice. This is a developing field of interest. At present grants in this area mainly arise from trustees’ own research and that of their expert advisers.
The trustees have an annual small grants programme for play schemes run in the summer school holiday which support children with ASD.
