Grant Application Process

Applications should be submitted by the email on the application form accessed below.

Once a grant is awarded, we will ask the awardee to provide a simple report on its progress so that we can share your story. A grant progress report form can be downloaded here. 

Repeat funding requests can be submitted the year following a successful application. A sample report form, is available here.

Further Grant Information

The charity is happy to support requests for core funding as well as project-based grants, and actively encourages applications from relatively new organisations to help them become established. ​

We generally offer grants from anywhere between £300-£3,000, though trustees will consider requests for higher amounts.  ​

The trust prefers to support charities whose income is below £500,000. However, larger charities with pioneering pilot projects will be considered.

We do consider repeat funding requests, on receipt of satisfactory progress reports. Applications should be supported by annual accounts where available.

Exclusions:​

  • general appeals to directly promote religious or political agendas.

  • charities registered outside the UK

The trustees take a close interest in the progress of the projects they support, and projects shortlisted for grants will be processed as quickly as possible by the trust’s grants administrator Sue Hawes.
