  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.
