The Yapp Charitable Trust

Education & Employment Health & Social Care Older People Youth

The Yapp Charitable Trust offers grants to small registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £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.

Grants are normally for a maximum of £3,000 per year and they will fund for up to three years. Core costs are preferred and only 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.
