Pausing The Trust’s Grants Programmes

Due to the continuing uncertainty brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trustees have taken the difficult decision to not accept any new applications to The Trust’s grants programmes.

The Trustees believe this is the right thing to do during this period of unprecedented change. It ensures that applicants do not spend time on speculative applications for which the outcomes cannot be determined in the current uncertain situation, and allows us to focus on supporting existing grantees. The Trustees are also taking the opportunity to review the existing grants programmes, and we will keep the website updated with any new information. We realise this pause in grantmaking will be disappointing for some organisations and hope you understand why this decision has been made.
