Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

Trusthouse CF are a medium-sized grant making foundation giving grants to small, well-established organisations in the UK who address local issues in areas of extreme urban deprivation, or in remote and fragile rural communities.

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.

Rural Issues – They 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 which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 50%.

Urban Issues – They 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 Deprivation as being in the most deprived 20%.

Within these two areas they look to support

Community Support – For example: work with young people; community centres; support for carers; older people’s projects; help for refugees; family support; community transport; sports projects; rehabilitation of ex-offenders; alcohol and drug misuse projects; domestic violence prevention and aftermath.

Disability and Healthcare – For example: projects in deprived areas for people of all ages with physical and/or sensory disabilities; support for people with mental health issues; hospices.

Arts, Education and Heritage – For example: arts projects for people with disabilities; performance or visual arts with a clear and strong community impact; alternative education projects; supplementary teaching; heritage projects in marine or industrial areas which involve local people and have a demonstrable community benefit.

There are several tiers of funding; under £5000 (response in 6 weeks) under £10,000, up to £30000 for capital and capital grant for hospices
