They will only fund work that focuses on one of our priority groups:

  • Elderly people
  • Children and young people aged 5 – 25
  • People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental health challenges
  • Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
  • Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)

They only make grants for ongoing core funding and define core funding as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year.
