Defra’s £2 million boost to tackle air pollution
51 councils across England will receive funding for a range of projects designed to
reduce serious levels of air pollution in our towns and cities.

Councils have bid for funding to support a range of projects, from looking at
introducing low emission zones, to launching public information campaigns to raise
awareness of air pollution.

Eligibility for the grant was limited to English local authorities with one or more Air
Quality Management Areas for NO2 or those authorities where the Government’s
national air quality assessment in 2009 identified a high level of NO2 emissions in their
area.

The Government hopes that these projects will lead to significant reductions in NO2
emissions over the next twelve months in those areas where urgent change is
required.

In East Sussex, Lewes District Council was successful in securing £120,000 towards a
Sussex Low Emission Zone feasibility assessment project (2012-2013).

Sport England’s Protecting Playing Fields
48 sports playing fields across England are to be protected and improved in the first
wave of National Lottery investment by legacy fund.

The announcement came as Sport England invited communities across the country to
bring the 2012 legacy to life in their area by bidding for support for a local playing field
through the second £2 million round of Protecting Playing Fields.

In round one, over £2 million has been offered to sports clubs and local groups to bring
disused playing fields back into use, improve existing sites or create new sports
pitches. A further £8 million will be awarded to hundreds of projects through four more
funding rounds.

Protecting Playing Fields is part of the Places People Play legacy programme to bring
the inspiration and magic of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games into communities
all over the country.

4 awards were made in the South East, one of which is in East Sussex: Barcombe
Parish Council was awarded £40,491 for Barcombe Playing Pitch Extension and
Improvements.

Information and Guidance
B&Q Waste Donation Scheme
B&Q operates a waste donation scheme through all stores. This scheme allows
donation of waste materials, for example slightly damaged tins of paint, off-cuts of
timber, odd rolls of wallpaper and end of range materials, to community groups,
charities and schools.

The waste donation scheme is co-ordinated in store either by the environmental
champion, duty or Warehouse manager who will keep a Waste Donation Form on file
for interested groups.

Before any materials are donated, the form must be signed by a representative of the
group.

As health and safety is taken into consideration, electrical, petrol and gas items are not
available for donation. Any waste or surplus stock donated must not be re-sold.

Breaks4kids - YHA
Breaks 4 Kids is a charitable fund founded and supported by YHA (Youth Hostel
Association). They help to fund youth group and school trips for children from low
income households, by contributing up to 50% of the cost of their YHA accommodation
and food. This gives children who would otherwise be left behind, the chance to be
included in the trip with the rest of their group.

Residential trips and activities allow children to expand their horizons, build their
confidence and self-esteem, and develop important skills in communication and team
building. They believe that all children should have the opportunity to experience
learning beyond their classroom, allowing them to appreciate the countryside and the
cultural value of our towns and cities.

For further information on how they can help and how to apply please visit:-

Community Development Finance Association
The Community Development Finance Association have a website called 'Finding
Finance' to help third sector organisations search their members for sources of loan
finance.

Many Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs) only lend in certain areas,
and some lend money to individuals, while others lend to businesses, or to charities
and social enterprises. Before you apply to a CDFI for finance, it is important to make
sure they can lend you money for how you want to use it.

If you answer a few simple questions, their CDFI finder can tell you which CDFIs you
can apply for finance from. They also give you the contact details of those CDFIs, and
information on how to apply for loans.

Classic Tours - Open Challenges
Classic Tours has been providing charity challenges since they originated the concept
in 1992. Since then over 30,000 people have cycled, trekked, run, scaled mountains
and even ridden horses and camels to all corners of the globe.

sleds, runs, car rallies and motorbike rides. They take place in countries as diverse as


                                           8
Brazil, China, Ecuador, India, Jordan, Peru, Russia, Tibet and Vietnam. There are
three different difficulty levels, ensuring there really is something for everyone.

The website contains an extensive list of challenges that support a specific cause -
from a leading national charity to a small local hospice.
Choose the charity and event that most appeals and fill in the enquiry form. (You can
choose up to 5 challenges). They will then forward your request to the relevant charity
or charities.

Each charity will send you details of the registration fee needed to sign up and the
minimum sponsorship target required. As a rough guide:

approx. Minimum 7-10 day event; Registration Fee £200-£300 approx; Sponsorship
Target £2000-£2750 approx.

Your tour cost is paid by the charity from your sponsorship money and represents no
more than 50% of the funds you have raised.

Challenges. This is a programme of exciting challenges where you can sign up and
fundraise for any charity of your choice.

In Kind Direct

the goods you use in the course of your work? Whether it’s the office equipment and
supplies to run your own office or the myriad things you provide for the people you
serve, In Kind Direct can be an invaluable resource.

of collecting, warehousing and delivering the goods to your door. On average this
works out at around 10 - 15% of the actual value.

Hospitals Mutual benefit societies Bodies set up solely for the promotion of religion

Paul Hamlyn Foundation: Education & Learning - guidelines
update
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has advised that some of the guidelines for the
'Supplementary education' theme under its Education and Learning Programme Open
Grants Scheme have been updated.

The update aims to provide greater detail on the specific interests of the work the
Foundation would like to fund in supplementary schools. The changes indicate that the
programme wishes to support proposals for the development of strong, sustainable
partnerships between supplementary and mainstream schools. The Foundation is
particularly interested in proposals that present low cost models for building and
maintaining close collaboration and sharing of practice that will in particular, benefit
underachieving pupils.

Additionally, the new guidelines welcome proposals to support the post-16 progression
of supplementary school students to continuing, further or higher education,
employment or training.

The programme's other two themes - Speaking and Listening, and Tackling Truancy
and Exclusion - remain unchanged.

Applications can be made at any time.

Study of Funding Plus
The researchers sought the views of 29 trusts and foundations and carried out 101
interviews. Their research emphasised that trusts and foundations have many other
assets beside money - buildings, knowledge and skills, contacts, brandings and
leverage - and use them in a wide range of ways in their funding plus activities.
However, while funding plus activity covers a broad spectrum - with grant-makers both
defining it and doing it differently, the researchers were able to identify some
preconditions that they consider essential to success, which include: strong personal
relationships good knowledge of grantees and the sector in which they operate
grantees that are ready and willing for an engaged relationship with a funder bespoke
rather than standardised or prescriptive approaches careful and responsible
management of power relationships between funder and grantee.

Government
Communitybuilders
Communitybuilders has reopened. It is now a £27m permanent fund, endowed by the
Communities and Local Government department to the Adventure Capital Fund earlier
this year.

Sums of between £250,000 and £750,000 available for funding property purchases or
investment in equipment such as vehicles

The £27m regeneration loan fund Communitybuilders has reopened to charities and
will make up to six "flagship" investments in community regeneration projects.

Loans will be available for between £250,000 and £750,000, which can be used for
activities such as buying and renovating property, and professional costs associated
with it, or for the purchase of equipment such as vehicles and IT infrastructure.

Communitybuilders, which is managed by the Social Investment Business, will supply
between 20 and 50 per cent of any funding package, with organisations expected to
find the remainder from other match-funders.

It was originally set up as a grant and loan fund with £60m from the CLG and another
£10m from the Office for Civil Society, administered by ACF through its subsidiary the
SIB.

It began lending in 2009, but has in effect been closed to applications since the
coalition government came to power. Earlier this year, the government agreed to an
ACF proposal that it should continue as an "evergreen" fund.

Community First
The £80 million Community First Fund will provide small grants to community groups
and local social action projects in England.

The four year fund is designed to help communities come together through new and
existing community groups, to identify their strengths and local priorities, plan for their
future and become more resilient.

The funding is being administered via two strands; the £50 million Endowment Match
Challenge and the £30 million Neighbourhood Matched Fund.

Endowment Match Challenge will be available nationally and will match private
donations invested in community endowment funds to pay out money for small grants.

The Neighbourhood Matched Fund will provide small grants for some of the most
deprived areas in the country. It is a targeted programme that means that only certain
electoral wards are eligible in each Local Authority. Use the postcode checker to find
out if your area is eligible.



                                             19
Eligible wards and funding available to communities in East Sussex:

Castle: £67,820
Central: £33, 910
Central St Leonards: £50,865
Gensing: £33,910
Sidley: £33,910

Each eligible ward will need to have a Community First Panel, made up of 4 – 8 local
people who will work with their community to produce a Community First Plan and
recommend projects/activities to be funded in their ward.

For information on the application process for both strands, interested parties are
advised to consult the following web link: http://www.cdf.org.uk/web/guest/community-

Growing Places Fund
This £500m government loan fund will provide a one off upfront capital investment to
kick start developments that are stalled due to cash flow problems or lack of
confidence (loans repayable on the development’s completion).

Regional Development Agency. It is hoped that the Growing Places Fund will enable
similar local infrastructure funds to be established with a key role for local enterprise
partnerships in deciding spending needs.

Sport England – Sports makers launched
This is a £4m lottery funded scheme to inspire over 40,000 people to get involved, with
each of them spending at least 10 hours organising or leading sporting activities. It is
open to anyone aged 16 and over.

Sport Makers are, quite simply, people who make sport happen.

Some might organise sport informally for themselves and their friends, colleagues or
neighbours, for example by:

   Organising a friendly tennis session to help work colleagues get to know each
    other
   Rounding up half a dozen mates for a regular five-a-side football kickabout
   Encouraging five friends to do a local run in the park once a week, celebrating with
    breakfast afterwards and keeping them motivated.

Others won’t take part themselves, but will do all those things that make sport
possible, such as:

   Organising a fundraising fun-run for their village with the help of other Sport
    Makers
   Creating a multi-sport event or festival for the local community with other people
   Welcoming new participants at a local hockey club, helping them play the game
    and encouraging them to keep coming back.
   Becoming a Sport Maker will give you the knowledge, information and connections
    to get better at making sport happen.

You will be one of 40,000 like-minded people who are making a difference to the lives
of their friends, colleagues or local community.

You will be helping to deliver the official London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
sporting legacy, Places People Play, by helping more people play more sport.

And you will be having a good time doing it.

Allen Lane Foundation
The Foundation is interested in funding work which benefits people in the following
groups, or generalist work which includes significant numbers from more than one
such group:

Asylum-seekers and refugees (but not groups working with a single nationality) Gay,
lesbian, bi-sexual or transgender people Gypsies and Travellers Migrant workers
Offenders and ex-offenders Older people, People experiencing mental health
problems People experiencing violence or abuse.

If the beneficiaries do not include a significant proportion of people from one or more of
these groups it is unlikely an application will be successful.

There is a 2 stage application process. Applications take between 2 and 6 months to
process fully

The grants are relatively modest. Single, one-off grants range from as little as £500 up
to £15,000. Grants repeated for more than one year vary from about £500 per annum
up to £5,000 per annum, for a maximum of three years.

To make sure that grants of this size have an impact the Foundation will not fund
larger organisations. The Foundation will make single grants, or grants for two or three
years. It is unlikely to make a second grant immediately after one has finished and if
an application is refused, they ask applicants to wait a year before applying again.

Biffaward Main Grants - Community
Under this scheme, Biffaward looks to award grants to projects that provide or improve
community spaces, cultural facilities and places for outdoor recreation.

You may have a building that needs improvement in order to increase the range of
services on offer to the local community. Or maybe an open space such as a park,
play area or woodland that needs transforming to benefit local people of all ages. In a
nutshell, they want to make sure that everyone has access to high quality local
community facilities. Grants between £5,000 and £50,000 are available.

Over the past 11 years Biffaward has awarded funding to over 2,000 projects. They
receive a continuous high number of Expression of Interest forms, resulting in strong
competition when granting full applications.

The main criteria for the Main Grants Community Scheme:
The project's site is within 10 miles of a Biffa operation. The project's site is also within
10 miles of a landfill site (owned by any company). There will be a minimum of 104
days of full public access to the project per year. Any Biffaward grant will be used for
site-based improvement work, not for equipment or running costs. Biffaward is unable
to fund requests to help an existing facility meet the requirements of the Disability
Discrimination Act. Biffaward is unable to fund retrospectively, so you should only
apply for money for work that will take place in the future.

Communitybuilders Fund
The former government funded scheme is in the process of being re-established as an
endowed fund, owned and administered by the Adventure Capital Fund. It supports
neighbourhood-based, community-led organisations to become more sustainable
through a mixture of loans, grants and business support.

                                           31
Community Radio Fund
The Fund has been established to help fund the core costs of running Ofcom licensed
community radio stations. These not-for-profit radio stations have a social purpose,
and work to involve their target community in running the service. While some of the
activities undertaken by a station, such as training, may attract funding more easily, it
is recognised that the essential core work involved in running a station is the most
difficult for which to find funding. The Community Radio Fund has been set up to
provide help with such costs.

The core functions might include, for example: fundraising to support the station (e.g.
grants, commercial funding); management; administration; financial management &
reporting; community outreach; volunteer organisation and support.

The Community Radio Fund Panel reviews the applications to the fund and makes the
award decisions. The Panel considers promoting long-term sustainability a critical,
core activity, and will take special note of innovative proposals that have this aim, such
as those focussing on business development and fund-raising. The Panel also
believes there is scope for more collaborative working or joint applications from
stations. A list of items that the Fund will not support is in the guidance document on
Ofcom's website (see link below).

The second round for funding applications in 2011/12 will open on 19 October and
close at 5pm on 16 November 2011. The Community Radio Fund Panel will meet to
consider applications on 30 January 2012.

Grants can only be made to community radio licensees who are broadcasting under a
community radio licence (and not an RSL, for example).

The latest application form and guidance notes are available below. Please also see
statements detailing the outcome of previous Panel meetings.

For further information, please contact Ofcom's Community Radio Team via email:
community.radio@ofcom.org.uk or by telephone 020 7981 3870.

Dulverton Trust
The Dulverton Trust operates within the following main areas of activity:

Youth and Education - This is the largest category and is concerned with educational
activities and opportunities for disadvantaged young people, helping them to achieve
their true potential. This includes enabling young people at risk of offending or
exclusion to access education and employment.

They wish to encourage studies in science and technology that will open up career
opportunities for young people in business and industry.

They believe in the character-building value of challenging outdoor activities such as
adventure training and sail training that encourage leadership and team spirit. We also
wish to help children, particularly from urban and suburban areas, to value the
countryside.

General Welfare - They support a wide range of activities that benefit disadvantaged
people and communities, with particular interest in: maintaining active living and
independence for older people strengthening and supporting family relationships, the
welfare of children in disadvantaged families and of children in care supporting carers
the rehabilitation of prisoners and ex-offenders and help for their families to rebuild
their lives helping young homeless people to move forward the welfare of former
members of the Armed Forces developing tolerance and understanding between faiths

Conservation - The Trust is keen to support the general conservation and protection
of wildlife habitats within the United Kingdom. We also encourage projects concerning
the protection and sympathetic management of trees and native woodlands. Projects
concerned with single species are rarely considered. Preservation - They are
interested in the preservation of outstanding historic artefacts and buildings of national
importance. We encourage the development of craftsmanship in the traditional
techniques of repair and restoration. Because we give annual grants to the National
Churches Trust and the Scottish Churches Architectural Heritage Trust for churches in
the United Kingdom, we are very rarely able to consider appeals from individual
churches.

Peace and Humanitarian Support - This is a restricted category which embraces
selected appeals concerned with: peace intervention infrastructure for disaster relief
Africa - Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will support only a very small
number of organisations operating in East Africa, or occasionally Southern Africa,
which already have a long association with the Trust. These usually operate in the
fields of education and conservation.

Major Grants - for charities that operate nationally or across the geographical regions
of the UK. Support will normally be restricted to charities whose annual income is
below £50 million. Minor Grants - for smaller charities usually working at local or
county level. Support will normally be restricted to charities whose annual income is
below £400,000. A fixed sum of money is earmarked each year for these awards and
the maximum grant is £3,500. Priority will be given to charities working in areas of
severe deprivation or rural isolation. Trustees meet four times a year to consider Major
appeals: in February, May, July and October. Minor appeals are considered four times
a year at variable times between the main agenda meetings. There are no deadlines
or closing dates. The Dulverton Trust, 5 St James's Place, London SW1A 1NP Tel:

The Fidelio Charitable Trust supports the Arts in the United Kingdom. The Trustees
aim to help individuals and groups who would not be able to carry out a project or
activity without financial support, particularly those who are at an early stage in their
careers. Such individuals and groups must be recommended by an appropriate person
in an institution, college, Arts Festival and similar organisations. Applications by those
seeking support for themselves will not be considered by the trustees. Fidelio's funds
are limited and no single grant will be greater than £5,000.

The person representing the recommending institution or organisation must vouch for
the competence and skill of those for whom they are applying to Fidelio and state how
they were selected. They should explain their professional relationship with the
individual or group, and describe accurately the project or activity for which money is
required.

and how the proposed budget is made up. The trustees, while willing to provide
support, may sometimes only be able to part-fund a project or activity.

The closing dates for receipt of applications are 1st February, 1st June and 1st
October.

Football Foundation Grants
The Football Foundation provides grants for a number of different things:
Their Facilities scheme provides money to develop new or improve facilities for
community benefit. These include changing rooms or clubhouses, grass or artificial
pitches and multi-use games areas.

Small grants for small facilities projects are available via the Build the Game scheme.
They aim to assess applications to this scheme much more quickly than applications

They also provide money via Grow the Game for small projects that aim to increase
participation by both players and volunteers in grass roots football by supporting the
costs associated with providing new activity.

 Their corporate partner programmes work with organisations that share their aims and
objectives to deliver government targets across areas such as crime, social
regeneration, health, participation, education and drugs.

The Football Stadia Improvement Fund provides money for clubs in the Football
League and the National League System down to step 7 and below who want to
improve their facilities.

Extra Time is a scheme that uses the power of football to target older people age 55
plus, and delivers social inclusion and physical activity projects nationwide.
Inside Right uses the hook of football and appeal of professional football clubs to reach
isolated young ex-servicemen and women, aged between 20-50. The scheme aims to
improve the individual’s mental health and wellbeing, and provide access to on-going
support and services.

The Premier League Community Facility Fund can be accessed by professional
clubs through their community organisations and is managed and administered by the
Football Foundation. The overall aim is to provide facilities aligned to professional club
community-led inclusion schemes which will serve to increase sports participation and

Nominet Trust Challenge
Launched this week, the Nominet Trust £250,000 Challenge is supporting digital
entrepreneurs over the age of 55 who have a viable idea for an internet start-up project
which tackles the social problems afflicting senior citizens, and helps older people
access the internet.




                                            41
The programme was launched following research showing there is an urgent need for
more web-based solutions designed for older people, by older people - as senior
citizens are more likely to seek support from their peers than from younger age
groups.

Grants of between £1,000 and £100,000 may be awarded towards projects costing up
to £250,000 in total.

The money can be used to fund projects that:

   use the internet to address specific social problems that older people encounter;
   design new and better ways for older people to access and use the internet; and
   develop and use technologies familiar to older people that may have internet
    functionality, such as projects that use IPTV or internet radio.

Anyone in the UK who is over the age of 55 with a good idea for an internet start-up
which uses the web to address specific social problems facing older people may apply.
The applicant may be operating as a business, charity, community interest company,
working at a university or within the public sector.

The deadline for first stage applications is 1 February 2012. Those shortlisted must
submit their full applications by 1 March 2012

                                            42

TeenBiz
TeeBiz is The UK's first business start-up initiative for young people aged 18 and
under. It was founded by Claire Young, a finalist on the 2008 run of the BBC television
series, The Apprentice.

The scheme aims to provide teenage entrepreneurs with the tools needed to start their
own businesses. It is designed to ignite an entrepreneurial interest among students
who want to take their ideas to the next step and require assistance to make this
happen. The objective is to help 100 young people who have fresh ideas, hunger and
drive, to commence business operations over the next three years.

Every month one student will receive up to £500 of funding. The money can be used
towards a range of start-up costs, primarily equipment required in the early stages of


                                           44
setting up a new business. Additionally, successful applicants will receive a mentor
and a 'Business in a Box' start-up pack - including a virtual PA service, business cards
and the loan of office space. Sponsors of the scheme have also donated vouchers for
stationery and a website.

TeenBiz is open to all students, of all academic levels - from 13 to 18-years-old, all
over the UK.

Opening in November to coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week, the scheme is
launching in a climate of high teenage unemployment and social disengagement, as
demonstrated by the summer riots which took places in cities across England.

Applications open 1 November 2011 for awards to start from 1 January 2012.

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation
Trusthouse gives grants for running costs or one-off capital costs to charities and not-
for-profit organisations in accordance with criteria that are regularly reviewed and
decided by the Trustees.

In July 2008, the Trustees reviewed its grants policy and decided to concentrate on
projects addressing Rural Issues and Urban Deprivation.

Rural Issues: we accept applications from organisations which are addressing issues
in rural areas. ‘Rural’ in this context means cities, towns, villages and areas with
10,000 or less inhabitants. We are interested in, for example, projects providing
transport for the elderly, disabled or disadvantaged; contact networks for the young
disabled; projects which encourage a sense of community such as community centres
and village halls; employment training schemes especially those promoting local,
traditional crafts; projects addressing issues such as drug/alcohol misuse or
homelessness.

Urban Deprivation: we will accept applications from local or national charities or not-
for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than
10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple


                                            45
Deprivation as being in the lowest 20%. We are interested in, for example, youth clubs;
training schemes to help people out of unemployment; drop in centres for the
homeless.

Applicants must clearly show in their appeal how their project fits into one or both of
these categories.

Within these overarching themes, they are interested in three areas:

Community
The support of carers; projects in deprived communities; projects addressing financial
exclusion; the provision of sporting facilities or equipment in deprived areas;
Drugs and Alcohol: rehabilitation of substance and alcohol mis-users;
Elderly: projects addressing isolation and loneliness (e.g. befriending schemes);
domiciliary support (e.g. respite for carers), residential improvements/ adaptations;
Ex-offenders: projects working with prisoners and ex-offenders to improve their life
skills and reduce re-offending;
Young People: projects which build the confidence, life skills and employment skills of
young people in need.

Disability and Healthcare Physical and Mental Disability: projects involving
rehabilitation, (including related arts and sport programmes); projects particularly for
ex-service men and women (including former employees of the emergency services);
projects for children (including holidays); and respite care;
Palliative Care: the provision of domiciliary care; support for volunteers and carers;
outreach services; the refurbishment of premises; the provision of equipment
(excluding in all cases services or costs which are normally funded from statutory
sources);
Medicine: special equipment (not available on the NHS) for the chronically or
terminally ill at home. (Medical research projects are ineligble).


Arts, Education and Heritage Arts: projects which enable the disabled and people
living in areas of need and poverty to participate in the performance arts and to
experience artistic excellence in the performing arts; projects which encourage and
give opportunities to young talented people whose circumstances might otherwise
deny them (but not bursaries or fees);
Education: projects which help children at risk of exclusion or with exceptionally
challenging behaviour to realise their educational potential; projects which encourage
and give opportunities to young talented people whose circumstances might otherwise
deny them access to further/higher education;
Heritage: smaller heritage projects, with a particular interest in industrial and maritime
projects in areas of deprivation, which provide employment and/or volunteering
opportunities for the local community and contribute to the regeneration of the area.

Vegetarian for Life Grants
This charity aims to support and enhance quality of life for older vegetarians and
vegans. One-off grants of up to £3,000 are available for equipment, adaptations and
respite care.

Vegetarian for Life administers two charitable funds, The Vegan Fund and The
Vegetarian Fund, on behalf of The Vegetarian Housing Association, our sister
organisation. The Funds were launched in 2010, and we were pleased to award the
first grant in May 2010 - for a stair lift to enable a vegetarian lady to move out of care,
back to her own home, to resume independent living. Since then we have awarded
three further grants for assistance with relocation, a bath aid and vegetarian/vegan
cookery courses for older people in Wales.

To be eligible for a grant from either fund you must be:

   aged 60 or over in financial need (i.e. with a relatively small regular income and
    relatively low savings - we follow the limits used for eligibility for means-tested state
    benefits)
   and - for a grant from The Vegan Fund - a practising vegan
   or - for a grant from The Vegetarian Fund - a practising vegetarian

Applications may be made at any time.

Grants are awarded on a one-off basis. They are not suitable for ongoing expenditure.
Grants are normally made to assist ‘independent living’, for example: to provide ramps,
grab handles, minor kitchen/bathroom adaptations, stair lifts, or perhaps respite care
(a short stay in a care home for a person being cared for at home, to provide a break
for the carer).

Applications for other uses will be considered – as long as the grant will benefit one or
more older vegetarians or vegans.

Individual grants are normally subject to an upper limit of £3,000, but this may vary if
the grant would benefit more than one eligible person or, at the Trustees’ discretion, if
there are other extenuating circumstances.

Each application will be judged on its individual merit by the Trustees of Vegetarian
Housing Association, whose decision is final.

220888 or info@vegetarianforlife.org.uk

Wakeham Trust
The Wakeham Trust provides grants to help people rebuild their communities. They
are particularly interested in neighbourhood projects, community arts projects, projects
involving community service by young people, or projects set up by those who are
socially excluded.

The Trust also supports innovative projects to promote excellence in teaching (at any
level, from primary schools to universities), though it never support individuals. They
aim to refresh the parts that other funding sources can't reach, especially new ideas
and unpopular causes. Because they do not appeal to the public for funds, they can
take risks. Because the Trust is mostly run by volunteers, it can afford to make very
small grants, without their funds being eaten up by administration costs.

They favour small projects - often, but not always, start-ups and they try to break the
vicious circle whereby you have to be established to get funding from major charities,
but you have to get funding to get established. The Trust does not favour any
particular areas of activity. The best way to understand the kinds of projects they
support is to look at their website as detailed below.

You can apply for a grant either by writing us a letter or by filling in the online form on
their website. If you have a choice, we prefer online applications.

Yapp Charitable Trust
The Yapp Charitable Trust make grants to small registered charities to sustain their
existing work with:
Elderly people Children and young people aged 5 – 25 People with disabilities or
mental health problems Moral welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting
problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship
difficulties, abuse, offending) Education and learning (with a particular interest in
people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)
Please note: In August 2011 Yapp revised their criteria and funding priorities following
a review of their grant making policy. Please read the updated guidelines carefully as
they outline some important changes to what they can fund.

One of the biggest changes is that they can now only offer grants to registered
charities with an annual expenditure of less than £40,000.

Revised guidelines and applications forms are now available. Potential applicants are
strongly advised to review the basic eligibility questions before downloading and
completing an application form. They will only fund charities that can demonstrate they
meet the eligibility criteria. They will not consider requests for funding made on the old
application form after 30th September 2011

Please use their eligibility checker online before applying.

Further help and their application form are on Website:
