Daniell Trust

Tony & Noreen Daniell founded the Trust in order to support charitable organisations close to their hearts. The Trustees endeavour to continue their good work through their support of well managed registered charities focused on the following areas:

  • The care and education of children and young people with severe learning difficulties
  • Environmental conservation, including projects with a wildlife focus combined with local community engagement

They are keen to identify projects that combine these two key areas, for example initiatives which combine environmental objectives with significant community benefit.


Priority interest is projects that improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people with complex special educational needs through connections to nature and the environment.

The Trustees have decided to launch a new programme of grants for 2023 and have previously distributed small grants but are now looking to spend the remainder of the assets over the next few years on more significant, sustainable projects that will leave a lasting legacy to the Trust’s founders. Grants of between £50,000-£250,000 are now available.

Awards will now become a two-stage process requiring applicants to complete an initial Expression of Interest form. If selected, organisations will then be invited to apply for grant support.

Please note we only support charities that work in England, Wales or Scotland, and which have an annual turnover of at least £250,000.

Full details of our eligibility criteria are available in the Guidance Notes and Expression of Interest form in the Downloads section of this website.

The closing date for Expression of Interest forms is 31 March 2023.
