Funding A-Z

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

Learning Disability Large 1Trusthouse gives grants for running costs or one-off capital costs to charities and not-for-profit organisations in accordance with criteria that are regularly reviewed and decided by the Trustees.

In July 2008, the Trustees reviewed its grants policy and decided to concentrate on projects addressing Rural Issues and Urban Deprivation.

Rural Issues:
Trusthouse accept applications from organisations which are addressing issues in rural areas. ‘Rural’ in this context means cities, towns, villages and areas with 10,000 or less inhabitants which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 50%. They are interested in, for example, projects providing transport for the elderly, disabled or disadvantaged; contact networks for the young disabled; projects which encourage a sense of community such as community centres and village halls; employment training schemes especially those promoting local, traditional crafts; projects addressing issues such as drug/alcohol misuse or homelessness.

Urban Deprivation:
Trusthouse will accept applications from local or national charities or not-for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than 10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 20%. They are interested in, for example, youth clubs; training schemes to help people out of unemployment; drop in centres for the homeless.

Applicants must clearly show in their application how their project fits into one or both of these categories.

Within these overarching themes, Trusthouse are interested in three areas:

Community Support
For example: work with young people; community centres; support for carers; older people’s projects; help for refugees; family support; community transport; sports projects; rehabilitation of ex-offenders; alcohol and drug misuse projects; domestic violence prevention and aftermath.

Disability and Healthcare
For example: projects in deprived areas for people of all ages with physical and/or sensory disabilities; support for people with mental health issues; hospices.

Arts, Education and Heritage
For example: arts projects for people with disabilities; performance or visual arts with a clear and strong community impact; alternative education projects; supplementary teaching; heritage projects in marine or industrial areas which involve local people and have a demonstrable community benefit.
