What are the funding priorities

All applications must relate to projects that assist individuals in their return to mainstream society, rather than simply offering shelter or other forms of sustenance.

What can the grant be used for

Capital projects only. They cannot fund computers or IT equipment.

Is there a deadline  

The quarterly deadlines for applications for funding each year are: 15th March/ 15th June/ 15th September/ 15th December. You will be informed of the trustees’ decision within six weeks of each deadline.
