Mrs Smith & Mount Trust: The Mount Fund

Health & Social Care Local Grants

The Mrs Smith & Mount Trust aims to assist disadvantaged people towards greater independence or a better quality of life.

The Mount Fund currently has the following priority areas:

  1. Mental Health
  2. Learning Disability
  3. Homelessness
  4. Health in the Community. This category is for registered charities with an annual income of less than £500,000, working to improve health in the community. This could include groups working in areas such as young people leaving care, people recovering from domestic violence, food poverty, childhood obesity, specific health conditions and hospices. The Trustees do not consider appeals for equipment under this category.

The majority of the Trust’s grants are for projects, but occasionally general running costs for a charity, particularly if we have supported that charity in the past, are funded. The Trustees will not normally consider building costs, only refurbishment or alterations necessary to bring a building up to standards to meet legislative requirements.

The Mrs Smith & Mount Trust priorities projects in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent, Surrey and London and there is no maximum amount you can apply for. Previously grants are all under £10,000 averaging around £5,000.

Deadline: The Trustees meet three times per year in March, July and November (specific date will be advertised on the Trust’s website) and application forms and supporting documentation must be submitted at least six weeks in advance of a meeting or by the date specified. Applications submitted after the meeting has closed will not be considered and will not be retained for future meetings.
