Aims/priorities: Applications must clearly show that the project fits in with one or both of their overarching themes:

  • Rural Issues and Urban Deprivation. ‘Rural’ is classified as areas with less

than 10,000 inhabitants. Local postcodes should be ranked within the bottom 50% of the latest

Indices of Multiple Deprivation.

Your community must be based in a remote, rural, economically deprived area where there are few local facilities, transport may be an issue, incomes are low and there are limited opportunities for fundraising.

  • ‘Urban’ is classified as areas with a population of morethan 10,000. The focus is on projects based or working in areas of extreme urban deprivation where local postcodes are ranked within the bottom 20% of the latest Indices of Multiple Deprivation. Within the overarching themes, the Foundation is interested in projects which fall roughly into three categories: Community Support; Arts, Education and Heritage; Disability and Healthcare.
