The Trust is relatively small and grants are usually up to £2,000 per application.
Support is focused on organisations based in Birmingham and the surrounding West Midlands Region who work with disadvantaged children and young people under 18 or with a disability under 25.
Applications can be made by not for profit organisations.
The Trustees/Directors are particularly keen to support smaller organisations with an annual income of less than £250,000. Projects that have an annual income of less than £250,000, but exist within a voluntary/statutory organisation with an income of more than £250,000, must supply a distinct ring-fenced bank account either in their project’s name or held in audited professional accounts held by workers in the organisation.
All grants are made at the discretion of the Trustees/Directors who meet four times a year in March, June, September and December to consider and allocate funds. Their decision is final.
We do not make grants in response to applications received in the form of general appeals or mail shots.
