The trustees meet four times each year, normally in January, April, July and October, to review applications and decide grants. Cut off for applications will be 20th March, 20th June, 20th September and 20th December. Online applications accepted only.

Successful applicants only will be informed.

The Trust welcomes applications which fall within the trustees’ general working criteria for making grants. See Trustees Grant Policy and How to Apply below.

Grant applicants must agree to our Terms & Conditions.

The amount of grants distributed in any one year is at the discretion of the trustees and also depends upon the income generated from investments.

Trustees Grant Policy

We do not make grants to individuals.

We ask for last two years’ accounts if available.

The Trust’s Grant Policy is detailed below:

  1. The trustees welcome applications for grants and request that those applying adopt the procedure set out in “How to apply” for a grant below.

  2. While the trustee’s discretion is wide, as a matter of practice the trustees have historically sought to support:

    • Charitable projects and activities in or benefiting the people of Nottinghamshire,

    • Activities relating to community healthcare services including home care, aftercare, sufferers of long-term medical conditions and the continuing care of disabled people.

    • Health education and prevention – promoting knowledge and awareness of specific diseases or medical conditions.

    • Lifelong learning projects helping people of any age to achieve their educational potential through supplementary schools, literacy and numeracy projects, community education, vocational/restart education for the unemployed, and alternative education for excluded school pupils

    • Community development by helping groups to organise and respond to problems and needs in their communities

    • Personal social services including organisations assisting individuals or families to overcome social deprivation e.g. people who are homeless or disabled and their carers, single parent and childcare groups and other family support groups

    • Social preventive schemes covering activities which prevent crime, “dropping out” and general delinquency, provide social care outreach services, deliver social health and safety awareness schemes

Please note:

  1. The Trust will only donate to organisations based or specifically working in England

  2. The Trust will not consider any new application for donations from individuals

  3. The Trust will not donate to activities that are the responsibility of the local health authority, education authority or similar body

  4. The trust prefers to make grants to charitable organisations in or for the people in Nottingham or Nottinghamshire. Applications from charities immediately outside this area may be considered at the discretion of the trustees.

Trustees normally meet quarterly each year. If the grant is approved we will write to you with a cheque soon after the meeting.
