Where we fund…
We will consider applications from UK registered charities based in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We do not support CICs or charities working overseas.
Who we fund…
The Albert Hunt Trust supports UK registered charities that:
- Provide Hospice Care – core funding of hospices is a priority.Typical grant sizes range from £10,000-£20,000. We will consider capital projects in addition to core funding but we would recommend you contact us before submitting an application.
- Provide support for the Homeless – typical core funding grant sizes range from £5,000-£10,000. Please contact us for guidance if your application is for a capital project.
- Promote Health and Well-Being – areas of support under this heading have included physical and learning disability, physical and mental health, plus social challenge and deprivation.Typical grant sizes range from £500-£5,000. We look to support organisations in this category with an annual income of below £250,000. However, in certain circumstances we will look at capital projects, such as significant equipment purchases or building works irrespective of the income levels. We would recommend you contact us prior to submiting an application for a capital request.
If you are unsure if you meet our criteria and would like some guidance prior to submitting your application then please contact us via email or telephone and we will be pleased to discuss this with you.
What we fund…
Grants may be considered for a range of purposes and could include:
- Single awards for capital projects (building / equipment / renovation)
- Grants for core funding to include staff costs.
- Ongoing running costs for specific projects
The type, size and time period of the award is decided on the basis of the perceived ‘difference’ that our support will make to the organisation, to the project and to the targeted beneficiaries.
It is important that you tell us in your application the full extent of the funding you really need to achieve your aims and objectives, in order for us to assess how best we can contribute.
When awarding grants for capital projects the trustees may wish to visit the organisation to gain further understanding of the aims and objectives of the potential recipient and the need for the project.
