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 £2,500 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 Stuart, the Director, 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 before the meeting date. Grants Committee meeting dates for 2024 are currently as follows (these may change later in the year):

23rd May 2024
Deadline for applications to be received: 5pm Thursday 25th April 2024

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. Applications received after the deadline may experience a delay in receiving a decision.

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 Guidance Notes before starting your application. To see our evaluation form Download Grant Evaluation Form
