The Trustees have almost completed their plan to spend the Trust’s endowment, and in their final period of operation 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:
- Health and Community Care – substantial HIV/AIDS projects in the UK and Africa, social exclusion, the sexual health of young people, and hospices
- Arts and Heritage – arts, architectural and environmental projects of national or regional importance, including galleries, museums, and historic houses and gardens. Proposals are particularly welcome for cultural projects which will make a major contribution to improving economically depressed areas.
- Criminal justice – including prisoners’ resettlement and alternatives to custody – and homelessness
