The Trust is currently accepting applications from charities registered in the UK with an annual turnover of less than £300,000. The Trust has two funding rounds per year. The autumn round is now open for application from UK registered charities with an annual income of less than £300,000.

The Trust offers the following grants:

  • Small grants of between £100 and £5,000 (around 100 grants are made per year).
  • Large grants of over £5,000 (around five grants are made per year and these are usually awarded to charities already known to the Trustees).

Applicants should be aware that less than 15% of the applications received are successful.   Applications must be in support of the following activities:
