Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour and projects to help those who have been in the care system. This also covers gang violence and knife crime, education and mentoring as well as projects that work to raise self-esteem and employment opportunities and encourage an active involvement in and contribution towards the local community;
Disadvantaged families, this covers parenting support and guidance, mental health, food poverty, refuges and domestic violence projects;
Prisoners and ex-offenders and specifically projects that maintain and develop contact with prisoners’ families and help with the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners and/or ex-offenders after their release.
Funding Information

The Trustees make two types of grants:
Small grants – up to £3,000, but usually £1,000 or less;
Large grants – Only a few large grants are awarded over £3,000 each year, and these are usually to charities known to the Trustees. Please note that unsolicited applications for more than £3,000 will ALWAYS be rejected.
Eligibility Criteria
The Trust only funds registered UK charities, CICs, CIOs and exempt charities (an exempt charity has charitable status and is required to comply with charity law).
They do not fund voluntary community groups, constituted groups/forums, hospices, gyms, sports centres, nurseries, or ‘not-for-profit’ companies, or individuals in any capacity, even if the work being undertaken is charitable.
If you want to apply for a grant this will need to be done via a UK registered charity, or one of the eligible organisation types listed above.
They will not consider funding charitable branches of larger organisations if the parent organisation’s income exceeds £1 million. If you are a subsidiary of a larger organisation you will need to be independently registered with the Charity Commission or Companies House. They will also not fund branches where the majority of their income is provided by a national organisation.
