The Trustees have almost completed their plan to spend the Trust’s endowment and close down. In their final period of operation they will only be considering new grants to charities with which they already have a close association. Historically the Trust has made grants in the following areas:
- Arts and Heritage – arts, architectural and environmental projects of national or regional importance, including galleries, museums, and historic houses and gardens. Cultural projects which made a major contribution to regenerating economically depressed areas.
- Health and Community Care – substantial HIV/AIDS projects in the UK and Africa, social exclusion, community care, and hospices.
- Criminal justice – including prisoners’ resettlement and alternatives to custody – and homelessness
