The Trust has re-structured their Grants programme for 2017. They now have four application periods per year. Each round has a different focus and funding amount.
The 2017 priority is music and the arts and the elderly. Priority will be given to projects focussing on homelessness, domestic abuse, prisoners/offenders, training and education, counselling and support, and activities for those with limited access or opportunities. To apply for the Elderly Grant round 4 a charity must have a minimum income of £500,000. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2017.
