The Foundation provides grants with the aim of enhancing the quality of life for people in need, specifically those on low income who have a physical or mental disability or those with long-term illness, across the following themes:
- Health and wellbeing
- Independent living at home
Due to the Covid-19 crisis the Foundation has taken the decision to suspend accepting applications from charities with a gross income in excess of £5 million and to focus resources on helping smaller charities providing front line community services who have less than six months’ of free reserves. This funding can be used to support their core operating costs.
