Tudor makes grants, and provides other types of support, to voluntary and community groups working in any part of the UK. The trustees particularly want to help smaller, community-led organisations that work directly with people who are at the margins of society: organisations that support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities. They want to respond flexibly to your ideas and energy, and to fund effective organisations working to high standards. Their ability to be flexible can mean that they are well-placed to support organisations which are in transition, whether they are entering a period of growth and development or are responding creatively to challenging circumstances.
Tudor wants to support organisations which:
- Display positive organisational characteristics
- Address marginalisation
- Make a difference
Grants are usually made over 1, 2 or 3 years and there is no maximum or minimum grant, though in practice it is unusual for grants of less than £10,000 to be made. Grants may be for:
- Core funding, including salaries, overheads and day-to-day running costs.
- Capital for buildings or equipment
- Help to strengthen your organisation
Sometimes trustees may decide to offer unrestricted funding, through a grant which can be used entirely freely to further an organisation’s charitable objectives.
The Trust remains open for non-emergency applications from organisations that they do not currently support. The trustees want to provide support to voluntary and community groups to continue their core work in the medium and long term, and don’t have funding allocated specifically for ’emergency’ or ‘recovery’.
