Latest Information

Annual deadlines: 30 April and 31 October.

Key Criteria

The Trust is keen to support smaller charitable organisations in England and Wales that might otherwise find it difficult to gain funding.  These include funds to many care homes for the elderly, to provide musical entertainment for residents.

Eligible Expenditure

The Trust awards grants to charitable bodies which provide cultural activities and related facilities for the elderly, in order to improve the quality of life of elderly people.

Match Funding Restrictions

If the Trustees decide that a grant is appropriate, they will then consider the amount and whether to require, for example, the recipient charity to contribute part of the cost of the proposed activity.  The Trust is particularly keen to act as a catalyst via matched funding.


Although no specific exclusions are cited in the scheme's guidelines, potential applicants are advised to write the Trust to ensure that projects meet the eligibility criteria.

Application Procedure

Interested applicants must submit a proposal by post and include a copy of their organisation's latest accounts.

The Trust is to be contacted only by post. It has requested that no contact be made by either email or telephone.
