The Yapp Charitable Trust awards grants of typically up to £3,000 (per year up to three years) to small registered charities (annual expenditure under £40,000) who are undertaking work with the following priority groups:
- Elderly people
- Children and young people aged 5 – 25
- People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges
- Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
- Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)
The Trust prioritises:
- Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders
- Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people
- Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers
- Charities that seek to be preventive and aim to change opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, education and campaigning
- Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users
Applications that don’t address at least two of the above are unlikely to receive a grant.
Only ongoing core costs and existing work that has been running for at least a year will be funded.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Trustees meet three times a year to review applications. Decisions can take up to five months.
