Our Grants

Large Organisational Grants

Our Large Organisational Grants are available to support organisations serving our area of benefit and are generally for sums between £2,000 and £10,000. If you are seeking a larger amount than this please contact the office first to make sure it is likely to fit with our grant priorities.

It is recommended to contact our Grant's Officer to discuss any potential applications before starting an application. Trustees are currently prioritising applications focussing on debt, homelessness and mental health although other categories will also be considered.

New applications will be considered by our Trustees at their quarterly Grants Committee meetings. Applications for large grants need to be received six weeks before the meeting date. Grants Committee meeting dates for 2022 are as follows:

Tuesday 25th January 2022 (deadline  14th December 2021)

Wednesday 27th April 2022 (deadline 16th March 2022)

Monday 11th July 2022 (deadline 30th May 2022)

Monday 24th October 2022 (deadline 12th September)

Getting your application into the Trust before the next deadline is strongly recommended since it leaves time for staff and Trustee Assessors to look at the applications and to ask for any clarification or additional information that may be required before the Grants Committee Meeting.

We can accept applications from organisations that cover an area bigger than our area of benefit but can only make a grant to assist the part of their work that benefits people in our AOB. Grants are usually given for a period of up to one year.

Staff or trustees may wish to visit an organisation before making a decision.  An evaluation report will be required at the end of the grant period. Please read our Applicant Guidance Notes before starting your application. To see our evaluation form Download Grant Evaluation Form

Please contact our Grants Officer if you would like to discuss details of any potential applications.
