The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust

Arts & Culture Environmental Health & Social Care

Current priorities are:

The Arts

  • Promotion of access, education, excellence, and diversity in the arts with emphasis on choral singing for children and young people to encourage recruitment into choirs
  • Performance development opportunities in the performing arts for those in the early stages of their careers, encouraging involvement in the community through performances and workshops for the benefit of those with special needs and those who would otherwise have no opportunity to hear or participate in a live performance
  • Support for charities seeking to engage with, and inspire, young people on the fringes of society through music and drama projects to improve their employability and diminish the risk of social exclusion

Medical Welfare

  • Provision of music and art therapy to improve quality of life
  • Support for charities concerned with alleviating the suffering of adults and children withmedical conditions who have difficulty finding support through traditional sources
  • The welfare of those who care for others through the provision of breaks for carers and projects and schemes that allow young carers to enjoy being children

The Environment

  • Conservation of the countryside and its woodlands, with emphasis on the encouragement of voluntary work and active involvement in hands-on activities, particularly activities that bring about positive changes in the lives of young people and help them to experience the value of nature
  • Rural crafts and skills in heritage conservation, with emphasis on increasingly rare skills that would otherwise be lost
  • Social and therapeutic horticulture: projects that use gardening or other environmental activities to bring about positive changes in the lives of those who are living with disabilities or ill-health

Grants are typically between £500-£6,000 over a one-year period. The Trustees will consider applications for core costs or projects with preference given to small-scale, locally based initiatives.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Three application review meetings per year in March, July and November.
