The Trust office is currently closed, but administration is being carried out from home. Please do not leave any phone messages as they will not be picked up; use the website contact form instead. Please do not send hard copies of anything through the post. Digital copies may be emailed to the Trust Manager.
The effect of COVID-19 on the operations of the Trust is minimal, but it is receiving a larger-than-usual number of emails and, since February, the volume of applications has more than doubled. This means the success rate is much reduced and is currently running at under 4%.
The Trust’s response to the outbreak is being kept under regular review. Some exceptional grants were made in the first few weeks of the crisis but we are now operating ‘business as usual’ in terms of procedures and timescales, which are detailed in the Grants menu. Any temporary changes to our policy will be announced on this page.
The next application deadline for our regular grant-giving programme (which can include COVID-19 related grants) is Saturday 31st October 2020. You must apply online via the form, which is accessible from this website. Award decisions for these applications will be made in December.
