The Newby Trust

Education & Employment Health & Social Care

The Newby Trust funds local, regional or national charities registered and operating in the UK within the broad categories of:

Education
The current aims of the Trust’s education programme are to enable people to benefit from educational opportunities and to support excellence. Within the over-arching aim, the Trust wishes to:

  1. enhance educational opportunities for children and young people through the funding of extra-curricular activities;
  2. support the personal development of children who need extra help to enable them to benefit from education; and
  3. nurture ability and talent at all ages.

Health
The broad objectives of the health category are to:

  1. maintain and improve the mental health of children and young people;
  2. support the mental and physical health of older people; and
  3. fund medical research.

Social Welfare
The aim of the social welfare category is to improve people’s quality of life in disadvantaged communities.  The Trust’s broad objectives in this category are to:

  1. provide small grants for short-term emergency relief;
  2. improve social support for disadvantaged groups; and
  3. support cultural and physical activities to improve wellbeing.

The Trust is more likely to fund smaller or medium-sized charities with an annual income of less than £1,000,000.  The Trust will make grants for core costs such as day-to-day running costs. The Trust also makes project grants, capital grants and grants for salaries and bursaries.

Grants may be made for one, two or three years, although most grants are for one year and normally range in size from £2,000 to £10,000.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme however, in general, only charities that are invited to apply will be considered for a grant.

To bring the work of your charity to the attention of the Trust please email: info@newby-trust.org.uk. Only those introductory emails the Trust wishes to take the enquiry to the next stage with will be responded to.
