COVID-19 UPDATE – 31 August 2021

The Trustees of the Foundation are keeping its grant making policy under constant review in the light of social and economic developments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please refer to our website regularly as we expect to refine our approach, depending on the length and impact of the pandemic as they affect the sectors we support.

We have reopened all our grant schemes with revised criteria for support.  Please refer to the relevant guidelines for further information.  



Please note that competition is intense; we receive many more applications than we are able to fund.  The Foundation only supports charities and is not able to support individuals.

Applications need to be submitted online.  Further information in the guidelines (links on the left-hand side of this page). 


Applications are accepted all year round; we have no deadlines.  

If you have any queries please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us on:
