Applications will only be considered if they fall within the following areas:

  • Children and young people who are isolated, at risk of exclusion or involved in anti-social behaviour.
  • Minority groups including refugees, gypsies and travellers. Projects that promote integration and community cohesion will be favoured.
  • Prisoners and ex-offenders. Projects that help the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners and/or ex-offenders are supported as well as requests to help prisoners families.
  • Disability projects which can include rehabilitation and training for people who are either physically disabled or learning disabled, as well as help to improve employment prospects.
  • Homelessness, especially affecting young people and women, and covering facilities such as women’s refuges.
  • Arts outreach work by local groups for the benefit of disadvantaged people.
  • Environmental projects, especially with a strong educational element.
  • The amounts awarded in each category are available in our annual report.


It is recommended that all applicants take time to read these guidelines in order to avoid submitting applications that are likely to be rejected and look at our Annual Reports for previous years. This will give more of an idea of both the type of organisation supported and the amounts awarded. Only if you think your project falls within our criteria should potential applicants telephone the administrator, Karin Hooper on 020 7410 0330, to seek advice.Please note that only about 15% of applicants are successful and the majority of grants are for less than £5,000.
