Update – December 2021

Please note that we are not currently accepting online applications.  This pause may remain in place throughout 2022, but will be reviewed on a quarterly basis at Trustee Meetings.

In 2020, we distributed £1.9m in grant monies, which represents a decrease of 10% on our average five-year grant giving – despite a forecast 75% drop in our cash income in the same period.

In 2021 we have targeted a minimum grant spend of £1.7m (whilst forecasting that our cash income in 2021 is unlikely to increase from the much-reduced 2020 level).  We are planning this level of grant spend by utilising our available reserves, focusing on the distribution of grants through our existing multi-year funding relationships.   Where those relationships are ending, we plan to renew as many as we can, but on a 12-month basis.

Thank you for your understanding – and feel free to continue to contact us for any help or guidance using the details at the foot of this page.

We will continue to update this page on a quarterly basis – our next meeting is scheduled for Friday, 4th March 2022.
