The Foundation funds seven particular beneficiary groups:
Asylum seekers and refugees
Gypsies and Travellers
Offenders and ex-offenders
People experiencing mental health problems
People experiencing violence or abuse
The maximum grant is £15,000, and the average grant size is around £5,000-£6,000.
While recognising (and being willing to support) on-going, tried and tested projects, they are also particularly interested in unusual, imaginative or pioneering projects which have perhaps not yet caught the public imagination.
