Trust Categories of Interest
The Barrack Charitable Trust only supports registered charities.
The Trustees look for clear, realistic and attainable aims. Grants vary, but most lie between £500 and £5,000. There is a separate simplified Grant Form (Small Grants) for grants £500.
Even though an application may fall within one or more of the categories, applicants should note that this does not signify that a grant will be made. There is a finite limit to the funds available and, invariably, categories are substantially over-subscribed. The Trustees reserve their right to exercise their discretion at all times, particularly when over-subscription applies.
The Trustees, while recognising that it is often difficult to raise core/revenue funding, and therefore being prepared to consider core/revenue grants in extreme circumstances, will nonetheless favour project funding.
Currently the major categories under which the Trustees consider support are:
- The advancement of the arts, heritage and culture.
- The provision of recreational facilities, or the organisation of recreational facilities, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities are primarily intended.
- The relief of those in need by reason of age, ill-health and disability.
