How to Apply

Applicants are requested to either print this page and return it to the address below, or to send us the information outlined on the Application Form by post or e-mail. Please send any additional information on a separate sheet. Organisations should also send a copy of their latest approved accounts and Trustees' Annual Report. Applicants may also contact the Trust Secretary by e-mail or telephone for further advice (details below). 

Please ensure that you supply all of the required information as incomplete applications may be delayed.
 
Examples of Previous Grants
In the past, the Trust has supported the training of nurses, helpers and carers within the community, organisations supporting those with disabilities and individuals with particular special needs, the teaching or study of medically related matters and grants to help individuals or organisations cope with special medical conditions.
 
Grants must be used entirely for the purpose for which they were made.
Once an Application Form has been received, it will be forwarded to the next Trustees' meeting for consideration.  

Grants Refusal Policy

In any one year the Trust receives more applications for funding than it can afford to support. The Trustees go to considerable lengths to ensure that every appeal for funding that is within our stated charitable objectives receives a full and fair hearing. We inform every applicant of the outcome of their application in writing by post or email as soon as possible and when doing so, but are unable to give feedback on individual applications. This is because of the number of applications we receive and the desire to minimise the costs of administering our grants programme in order to maximise the size of our grants budget.

Whilst Trustees’ decisions are final, the Trust Secretary is available to discuss potential applications with organisations and individuals prior to submission, to consider how projects might fit with our funding priorities and criteria. Applicants can then make a decision about whether to submit an application. We believe that investing time in clarifying questions about future applications is likely to be more beneficial than discussing previous applications.

PLEASE NOTE - Applications for individuals must be endorsed by, or submitted on their behalf by a third party, such as a social worker, health professional or supporting charity eg CAB, York Mind etc, we are sorry but we are unlikely to make grant cheques directly to individuals.
