Key Criteria

The Trust will only consider applications from registered charities.  Applicants must be based within the UK, although preference is given to those based in Scotland.

Eligible Expenditure

The Trust’s focus is on the family and the nurturing of its potential to create a supportive structure within the family unit. The Trust is interested in encouraging the development of strong and supportive family bonds through activities that help all elements of the family unit to grow together and support each other.

The Trust will consider both capital and revenue grants and is particularly interested in innovative projects and in projects that work in partnership with other local agencies to provide coherent support to improve the overall quality of family life. The Trust will support applications for core funding from relatively new organisations to help them become established.
