  • Elderly people
  • Children and young people aged 5 – 25
  • People with disabilities or mental health problems
  • People trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin – such as addiction, relationship difficulties, abuse, a history of offending
  • Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)

Applicants must have a total expenditure budget of less than £40,000 a year and they will only fund running costs.
