Eligible organisations must be a UK registered charity or a charitable organisation which is exempt from registration.
Grants are intended to support organisations undertaking projects in the following areas:

Previously grants have been awarded for between £200 and£160,000. In the financial year ending 5 April 2014 the Trust made donations to 21 different charitable organisations totalling£419,695. The average award was slightly below £20,00095% of all grants were awarded to health and welfare projects.
In many cases the Trust provides funding for two or three years to help ensure the stability of a project or initiative. New projects are required to have a business plan that demonstrates the applicant’s long-term sustainability.
Funding is not available for individuals.
 Examples of funded projects include:
o The installation of shared kitchens at a hostel for the homeless;
o Welfare advice and support for young people living with HIV;
o Funding for a family support team counsellor in a hospice; and
o The further development of a telephone befriending service for the isolated and elderly along with outreach work to empower and support carers who are otherwise isolated in the community.
