Like many grant-giving Trusts, the income we have to distribute to charities has been reduced in the last year due to the impact of COVID-19. As a consequence we will have a particular focus to our grant giving in 2021 and will be making a smaller number of grants this year. We anticipate that most of our grants will be under £10,000, with only one or two larger grants. Please read the “What We Fund “ section for more detail.
