Dates of Trustee meetings
The Trustees meet approximately every two months to consider applications for grants.
The cut off time for applications is midday.
The 2024 cut off dates for applications are:
4th January 2024
7th March 2024
2nd May 2024
4th July 2024
5th September 2024
7th November 2024
Closing date for applications
The trustees consider grants at their bi-monthly meetings, and applicants need to complete an application form if they wish to be considered for a grant.
We would prefer to receive your application well before the cut-off date so we can fully consider your application.
All applications must be received by midday on the closing date otherwise they will not be heard at that meeting. If the application is not received in time, the application will be moved to the next Trustee bi-monthly meeting.
In exceptional circumstances applications received after the cut off time, but deemed urgent by the Chair, may be considered.
Notification about your application
The trustees consider grants at their bi-monthly meetings. You will be sent a letter in the post confirming the result of your application.
The confirmation will be sent out approximately 2 weeks following the trustee bi-monthly meeting. It takes us this time to process the application results and grants.
Unless you have not heard from the trust for 2 weeks following the closing date, please do not make contact as Trustees need time to consider the applications, before letters can be put into the post.
Mama Addo-yobo, Margaret Faulkner (Minutes Secretary), Rupert Franklin, Kirsty Hancock, Pete Morgan, Jaison Musindo, Rob Pook, Su Roxburgh (Chair), Simon Scott (Treasurer), Helen Smith, Liz Williams (Applications Secretary) and Mike Young.
The Trustees and Co-opted Members are all current or retired Social Workers who give their time on a voluntary basis.
