Trusthouse is interested in applications for capital projects at community centres in the most deprived urban areas and village halls in remote and economically deprived rural areas.
The overarching areas of interest are
Rural Issues: ‘Rural’ in this context means cities, towns, villages and areas with 10,000 or less inhabitants which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 50%. For example, projects providing transport for the elderly, disabled or disadvantaged; contact networks for the young disabled; projects which encourage a sense of community such as community centres and village halls; employment training schemes especially those promoting local, traditional crafts; projects addressing issues such as drug/alcohol misuse or homelessness.
Urban Deprivation: applications from local charities or not-for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than 10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 15%. We are interested in, for example, youth clubs; training schemes to help people out of unemployment; drop in centres for the homeless. National charities might be eligible if working in a specific area which is within the deprivation ranks described above.
