Grant Policies

Grant Refusal Policy

In any one year the Trust receives more applications for funding than it can afford to support. The Trustees go to considerable lengths to ensure that every appeal for funding that is within our stated charitable objectives receives a full and fair hearing.

We inform every applicant of the outcome of their application in writing by post or email as soon as possible but are unable to give feedback on individual applications. This is because of the number of applications we receive and the desire to minimise the costs of administering our grants programme in order to maximise our grants budget.

Whilst Trustees’ decisions are final, the Trust Secretary is available to discuss potential applications with organisations and individuals prior to submission, to consider how projects might fit with our funding priorities and criteria. Applicants can then decide about whether to submit an application.

Complaints Handling Policy

Anyone who has a concern or complaint about any aspect of our service is encouraged to raise this in the first instance informally with the Trust Secretary.

If that is not possible, or the matter is not resolved informally, the complaint should be set out in writing and addressed to the Chairman of Trustees and marked Private and Confidential.

The Chair will investigate the complaint, and will aim to produce a decision, which is final, within 28 working days of receiving the letter. He/she will notify the person or organisation who complained and the reason for the decision.

All written complaints received, together with a copy of the response to the person or organisation who complained, will be notified to the Board of Trustees.

Complaints, both formal and informal, will be monitored, and information from this will be fed in to the planning process as appropriate.
