The Trust’s grant-making focuses on the following areas:

  • Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in antisocial behaviour
  • Minority groups, including refugees, gypsies and travellers. Projects that promote integration and community cohesion favoured
  • Prisoners and ex-offenders. Projects that help the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners and/or ex-offenders supported as well as requests to help prisoners’ families
  • Disability projects - can include rehabilitation and training for people with physical/learning disability as well as help improving employment prospects
  • Homelessness, especially affecting young people and women, and covering facilities such as women's refuges
  • Arts outreach work by local groups involving disadvantaged people
  • Environmental projects, especially with a strong educational element

The trustees prefer to fund small to medium-sized charities with an income of less than £300,000 where small grants can have more impact. The majority of the grants made are for one-off projects although some grants fund salaries and running costs.
