The Joicey Trust

The Trust makes grants within its main beneficial area of the North East of England (i.e. all NE and SR postcodes as well as postcodes DH1-DH9). It also welcomes applications from the Scottish Borders.

Grants are made across a wide spectrum for either revenue (including ‘core funding’) or capital expenditure. Applications for research (and research costs within core funding applications) will not normally be supported. The Trustees also generally exclude applications from charities that are not registered within the beneficiary area and where gross incoming resources exceed £1 million as any award would be a very small addition to these resources. Whilst the Trustees will always reserve their right of discretion as to the level of awards given, the maximum awarded is rarely more than 10% of the project costs claimed.

With the exception of core funding, the applicant may not incur expenses in relation to the application before the decision of the Trustees has been notified to the applicant – normally within 2 weeks of the meeting.

Grants are made to registered (or statutory) charities; where a charitable organisation is not registered, applications will be considered provided the application is accompanied by a letter from a Local Infrastructure Organisation (LIO, CVA, CVS etc) confirming they will receive any award on behalf of the charitable organisation. Grants are not made to individuals (with the exception of those sponsored by an international development charity – see ‘individuals’ below.)

Trustees’ meetings take place twice a year: usually late January/early February and late June/July.

Applications should be submitted to the appeals secretary in time to allow for any queries to be resolved by 30 November or 31 May in each year for consideration at the next Trustees’ meeting: early applications are therefore encouraged.

Average grant size £5000
