- It is something new for this particular area/community
- It is small
- It does not employ staff. Their website states that if the applicant can afford to employ staff it is probably too big for them
- It is not well established
- It has the potential to become self-supporting
- It is outward looking and helps a lot of people
- It has a UK charity number, or can find a charity to accept funds on its behalf
The Trust usually makes grants of between £125 and £2,500. There are no deadlines and the Trust operates a rolling scheme.
