Criteria for funding

To be eligible for funding, your work needs to match our aims, and focus on one (or more) of the seven beneficiary groups which we currently fund (click here).

Please also check through the following to make sure you fit our remit:  

Size of organisation?

To make sure our grants have an impact, we only fund smaller organisations. If you work across a local area such as a village, estate or town, to be eligible you will need to have an income of less than around £100,000. At the other end of the spectrum, if you work across the whole of the UK you will need to have an income of less than around £250,000.

Type of organisation?

We fund organisations which are registered charities, and also other organisations which are not charities but which seek funding for a charitable project. (Such as constituted voluntary groups or Community Interest Companies for example.)

We do not make grants to individuals.

Geographical area?

We make grants across the United Kingdom. The only exception is that we do not fund work within Greater London. Organisations which have their offices in London are eligible provided the people who benefit from their work are not only in London.
