Working with Community Foundations
The Trustees, at their Board meeting in May 2015, decided to close the registration process. The Trustees are committed to helping smaller, local charities and have therefore entered into agreement with five community foundations to provide minor grants on behalf of the Trust. Consequently, the Trust made the decision that uninvited applications will no longer be processed.
Minor Grants of up to £1,000 are administered for us by selected Community Foundations granting to small charities operating locally in the following regions.
Applications should be made directly to the relevant Communty Foundation.
Categories covered by the Trust Criteria
Only organisations that work within the following categories should approach the Community Foundations:-
Disadvantaged and exploited young people
The Trust does not support animal charities.
Welfare applications for and on behalf of current and former employees should be made to the Welfare Support Manager at the John Laing Welfare address shown in the contact us section.
