The Trust supports work that tries to meet the many different needs of people at the margins of society. It does not have any specific funding programmes to advance any particular agenda but is keen to work with organisations that have a real understanding of the challenges facing the communities they support, and a clear sense of the difference they seek to make through their work.

Advice and development support for organisations is also available from the Trust and in some situations short-term loans might be made, if this is the most helpful solution.
