We make most grants to organisations that we identify through our own research and networks. We also make a small number of grants in response to new enquiries.

We receive a large number of high quality applications and so the Trust is only able to make a very limited number of new grants each year.

Please make sure you are familiar with our focus areas and criteria before enquiring about funding.

If you meet our criteria, then follow our two stage process, how to apply:

1. Submit a short initial enquiry
2. If invited, submit a full application

The Trust makes grant decisions three times per year. Enquiries and applications can be submitted whenever is most appropriate for you.
