Grant Guidelines

The Trust usually provides one-off grants to individuals, organisations and charities to promote health and healing for those living in and around the City of York, although applications for multi-year funding would also be considered.

To qualify, applications should be made by registered charities or by organisations on behalf of individuals.

What sized grants do you provide?

We usually provide grants up to £10,000.

Who can receive a grant?

Beneficiaries can be individuals or registered charities.

Beneficiaries can be from any section of the community, including children, young adults and older people.

Anyone directly benefitting from a grant must live in or around the City of York.

What sort of grants do you fund?

Grants should aim to prevent, treat or alleviate illness, injury, disability or related conditions and disorders whether physical or related to mental health and well-being.

For example:

  1. to purchase specific equipment to alleviate the impact of a particular condition (either for an individual or a group)
  2. to provide a particular health related service (e.g. Helpline or support group)
  3. to provide for the education of health professionals (e.g. continued professional development, training of specialist nurses)

We are very sorry but we are unable to support core costs or building projects.

Please note that Grants must be used entirely for the purpose for which they were made.

Who can apply?

Applications for individuals must be made by a third-party referee, e.g. a social worker or health professional on behalf of the individual. It is usual practice for grants to be paid to the third-party referring agency rather than directly to an individual.
