  • Arts, Culture and Heritage

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Strengthening Communities

The Trustees are particularly interested in applications which can demonstrate the following:

  • Building strong communities and an understanding of how to engage with intended beneficiaries
  • Replicable and sustainable work, rather than one off events
  • Value for money
  • Maximising the use of volunteers
  • Support of older people
  • Support for marginalised/vulnerable younger people
  • The use of helplines and information support services
  • Sustainability of funding i.e. the charity will not be solely reliant on a grant from the Schroder Charity Trust for their work.
Is there a deadline
  • There are no set deadlines for applications to the Schroder Charity Trust
  • There are 2 rounds of grants made each year
  • It can take up to 9 months to receive a decision about your application – please bear this timescale in mind when applying for funding as we are unable to fund projects which have already started  or been completed
