Yapp Charitable Trust

 

 

 

The Trust make grants to small registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000 to sustain their existing work within the following areas:

  • Elderly people
  • Children and young people aged 5 to 25
  • People with disabilities or mental health problems
  • Moral welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, offending)
  • Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)

Grants are for core funding and are only awarded to registered charities that have been formally established for at least three years.

The Trust prioritises:

  • Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders
  • Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people
  • Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers
  • Charities that seek to be preventive and aim to change opinion and behaviour through raising awareness of issues, education and campaigning
  • Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self-sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users

There are no deadlines specified.

Grant size: Up to £3,000 per year for up to three years

Application process: Yapp Charitable Trust website
