Latest and next awards
The latest awards round was the first fully under our new policies. The trustees awarded grants of £3,000 each to:
- Step by Step School for Autistic Children, at Sharpethorne, East Sussex, as part of a laptop replacement programme;
- Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice near Arundel, West Sussex, for “Stay and Play” sessions.
Our next round will be in June 2018, application deadline 10 May. All available funds have been allocated, and no bids other than from charities so invited will be considered.
Awards policies – Major changes
We have reviewed our donations policy to ensure the funds we distribute can be used to greatest benefit by the charities we support. As part of this process, we have selected and notified certain charities we will now work with exclusively for the time being, and are not able to accept bids from other organisations.
