  • 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
