The Trustees have a clear policy in making grants. They support:
• Strategic initiatives that have an effect on large numbers of people over time. These create step change in areas of deprivation.
• Projects or activities in particular geographical or thematic areas, sometimes over time, in order to concentrate the effect of grants and target particular need
• The ad hoc needs of groups or organisations supported through one-off grants.
Charitable giving ranges from very large strategic projects to small local donations. All grants are made within the beneficial area. Applications from individuals are not accepted.
