Funding is available only to organisations within and projects based in the UK. Grants are not awarded to individuals.

Please review and consider the following:- 

  • Applications for General Grants will only be considered from voluntary organisations which are registered charities or are associated with a registered charity.
  • Schools and Parent Teacher Associations, Co-operative and Community Societies/Community Benefit Societies and other such exempt charities can also apply.
  • The Fund does not currently accept appeals from Community Interest Companies.
  • The Fund does not give grants towards anything considered to be statutory, if you are applying on behalf of a School or PTFA, it would have to be for something such as an extra-curricular club.
  • Applications for Research Grants will only be considered from university departments, we do not award research grants to charities due to research governance requirements.
  • The Trustees seek that funding is granted for the benefit of the community and appeals which benefit a specific target group of individuals are often unsuccessful.
