The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation has announced that capital and revenue funding is available to support the work of local and national charities and not-for-profit organisations that address rural and urban deprivation.
Within these two main headings, the Trust is interested in helping established projects which work in the fields of:

• Community Support
• Arts, Education & Heritage
• Disability & Health Care.

The type of projects the Trust are interested in funding include 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.

There are three grants schemes. These are:
• The Large Grant Scheme, with grants of between £10,000 and £30,000 to cover capital costs
• The Small Grant Scheme, grants of between £5,001 and £9,999 to cover capital and revenue costs;
• The Fast Track Scheme with grants of up to £5,000 to cover capital and revenue costs. In addition,

The Foundation also provides funding to support capital projects at hospices throughout the UK; and on local projects providing support for mothers and babies in the first two years of life.
The Grants Committee meets quarterly to consider applications at the beginning of February, May, September and November. The deadlines for submitting applications are generally 2 months before the date of a meeting.
