As a response to the current pandemic, the trust has changed its application guidelines and processes. Changes will apply for the spring application period march 16th – April 28th, in the first instance, by providing up to £5,000 unrestricted funding to small and medium charities under their Early years’ preventative work grants programme.
These changes are intended to assist small and medium sized charities with small sums of unrestricted funding during this difficult period. We will be able to make more grants than usual but we do not expect to be able to fund all applicants.
Please read the new guidelines carefully before deciding whether or not you are eligible to apply.
The Trust will make grant to organisations working to improve the life chances for some of the most disadvantaged children in England and Wales by investing in early intervention and preventative work. We support organisations whose work is with targeted groups of 0-3 year olds in England and Wales which will specifically improve the reach to these targeted groups and bring about improved defined outcomes for them.
Who can apply
- Charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales whose last audited accounts show an income of less than £750,000 and
- Charities that can demonstrate the likelihood of increased demand for their services and/or can demonstrate a loss of anticipated income attributable to the current pandemic
Duration and size of grants – Grants will be a one off payment of up to £5,000 and will be unrestricted.
Application date – Spring applications: applications can be submitted between March 16th and April 28th 2020, with grants for successful applicants being as soon as possible after the closing date.
