GRANTS

Grants

The Trust pays grants aimed at relieving poverty to households, organisations and community groups. We help individuals and families by providing basic essentials such as furniture, cookers and washing machines for people who cannot afford to buy them, although individuals/families cannot apply for grants direct to the Trust. Referral agents such as Neighbourhood Offices and CAB offices arrange for applications to be made to the Trust.

 

Individuals & Families

We pay grants for essential items such as ovens, fires, washing machines and refrigerators, but we do not accept applications direct. Referral agents such as Neighbourhood Offices and CAB offices arrange for applications to be made to the Trust.

Organisation & Community Groups

We support organisations and community groups that benefit people in the Trust area with cash grants.

Before deciding whether or not to support an organisation or community group, trustees will consider:-

The aim(s) of the project

  • The client group(s) and number of anticipated clients
  • A “business plan”, or statement of anticipated progress for at least the next year, preferably three years revenue estimates for at least the next year, preferably three years
  • To what extent other financial assistance might be available

If you represent an organisation or community group that wants to apply for funding from the Trust, please ensure you have this information to hand before completing our online application form.
