Objectives

A national grant-making trust, using invested funds to generate income.  We support small registered charities throughout England and Wales by making small grants, for running costs and salaries that help them sustain their services.

Activities

We make small grants to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 who are undertaking work with our 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)

 

We give priority to charities tackling work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders, particularly when it helps to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people.

 

We also give preference to charities that can demonstrate the effective involvement of volunteers.

 

Grants are usually for up to £3,000 a year.   The majority of our grants are for more than one year. Examples of recent grants can be found on our website.
