  • amateur sport
  • projects to support young people
  • health and welfare of older people

From time to time, at their discretion, Trustees may also provide support for causes that help prevent and relieve poverty, that provide relief from natural disasters and that support environmental protection or improvement.

Please note these deadlines by which applications should be submitted: 23 June, 1 September and 3 November. Successful applicants will be notified of the outcome about three weeks after each of those dates.
