Funding brief: The Peter Stebbings Memorial Charity (“the Charity”) gives grants to registered charities in the UK, usually operating in London, and also in the developing world. Generally grants go to charities where the grant will make a difference and where the Trustees can see how the money is being used.
In the U.K.
The main areas of interest are:
● Medical research and care
● Social welfare
● Mental health/counselling
● Drug and alcohol therapeutic support
● Offender support
● Community regeneration
● Vulnerable families, women and children
In the Developing World
● The Charity supports charities which operate in the developing world. However, it receives many such approaches and the following guidance is offered to provide more focus to those considering making an application. (This is in addition to the exclusions listed in Grants Policy).
● Education. The Charity would not normally directly assist a school or college, but is interested in supporting access to education for groups or communities who have limited access, through distance, poverty, discrimination, or exclusion.
● Basic skills and tools. Assistance towards increasing skills to enhance a community’s capacity and independence. Particularly to build local assets such as village schools, clinics, wells and sanitation.
● Health. The Charity would not normally directly fund a clinic or hospital, but is keen to assist basic training in health care, disease prevention, and in low tech/ low cost proven solutions to endemic problems (eg trachoma treatment, immunisation programmes).
● Sanitation, irrigation, hygiene and access to clean water. The Charity is interested in schemes to improve such basics, particularly with simple and repeatable measures. This includes measures for power, light and cooking.
● Women. Projects which enhance women’s education where opportunities have been limited, life choices, economic power, reproductive rights and safer childbirth. Microfinance projects aimed at women.
● Help for marginalised communities. For instance the Dalits in India, and pastoralists in east Africa.

Eligible organization: As below
● The Trustees are concerned that their grant support will make a real difference to the work of applicant organisations.
● Generally, the Trustees assist small to medium-sized charities with annual incomes of up to £5m.
● The Trustees fund projects, but are willing to consider core funding for organisations whose work they know.
● Local (London) charities have been helped where there is a link with the Trustees’ work or knowledge – this means London-based local charities, and not regional ones.
Please note that the Charity does not fund individuals, only registered charities. The Charity receives more applications than it has funds to support. In many cases it may not be possible to make grants for projects within the funding priorities.
