What are the aims of the Charities?
To support organisations that promote inclusion and community cohesion within our area of benefit. We offer this help on the basis of need and irrespective of background or religious belief of service users.
What can be applied for?
- Core funding including salaries, project costs, equipment and capital projects.
- Grants for holidays and day trips for vulnerable people in the community - must clearly demonstrate how it relates to our charitable aims.
All applications will be decided on merit, but any application for a holiday or trip would need to evidence to show that the event is of a therapeutic nature and not entirely for social reasons.
What cannot be applied for?
We generally do not support cultural and musical events unless it can be proved that a particularly deprived group in the community would benefit from this project, or that the event is designed to encourage social cohesion and integration.
What is the process time?
The trustees of the Charities meet quarterly in March, June, September and later November. Applications need to be submitted a minimum of 3 working weeks prior to the meeting to enable the Grants Officer to visit and discuss the application in more detail. Outcomes are usually conveyed the day following the trustee meeting.
Application submission deadlines for 2024 are: 22nd February, 30th May, 5th September and 7th November
