- social welfare, all age groups
- community and environmental development
- opportunities for young people
- promotion of improved quality of life
- personal or community empowerment.
Please note the Trust does not support large building appeals, animal charities, research or further education.
Grants generally range between £300 to £1,000. Occasionally grants can be outside this range.
