In the last quarter we have awarded 96 individual grants to families and individuals in need in our area of benefit. These grants have assisted with a variety of requests including new appliances, furnishings, clothing, food, children’s items, study essentials, travel costs, rent deposits and many more. The majority of our individual grants are for new white goods including washing machines, fridges and freezers. Trustees have asked that beneficiaries and referral agencies should be mindful of environmental considerations when purchasing new white goods with grants awarded by the Trust and disposing of old items.
Decisions on Large Organisational Grants that were seen at our meeting on 25th February will now be taken forward to the Trustees Committee on 16th March – after which a final decision will be reported back to applicant organisations. The deadline for Large Organisational Grants for our next Grants Committee Meeting is 18th March 2020 for the meeting on 29th April.
