The Trust supports organisations that:

  • Provide Hospice Care
  • Provide support for the Homeless
  • Promote health and well being – areas of support under this heading have included physical and learning disability, physical and mental health, plus social challenge and deprivation.

It will support organisations in this category with an annual income of below £250,000. However, capital projects, such as significant equipment purchases or building works will be considered irrespective of the income levels.

What the Trust funds:

Grants may be considered for a range of purposes and could include:

  • Single awards for capital projects (building / equipment / renovation)
  • Grants for core funding to include staff costs.
  • Ongoing running costs for specific projects

Grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 are available although grants for higher amounts can be awarded.

The type, size and time period of an award is decided on the basis of the perceived ‘difference’ the support will make to the organisation, to the project and to the targeted beneficiaries. When awarding grants for capital projects the trustees may wish to visit the organisation to gain further understanding of the aims and objectives of the potential recipient and the need for the project.

The majority of grant recipients are registered charities, although the Trustees may, from time to time, consider applications from other types of organisations which are pursuing charitable causes and where aims and objectives are ‘not for profit.’
