Grants will be considered for start-up costs, core costs or for a specific project for which applicants have requested support. This could include a contribution towards a building/refurbishment project, purchase of specialist equipment or other similar capital expenditure, or assistance with running costs.

● Charitable work in the County of Sussex
● Wildlife & Environmental Conservation (UK and International)

● Care of the Elderly
● Disability
● General Welfare
● Hospices

Notes: Trustees are unlikely to support applications for funding for periods longer than 12 months. In very exceptional circumstances they may consider funding for up to a period of three years, at which point they will review whether support should be withdrawn to enable resources to be devoted to other projects.

Trustees are very unlikely to consider more than one application per year by any applicant.
