Welcome to Trusthouse Charitable Foundation.

We are a medium-sized grant making foundation giving grants to small, well-established organisations in the UK who address local issues in areas of extreme urban deprivation, or in remote and fragile rural communities.

If you are interested in applying for a grant, please read our Grants section to see if your organisation is eligible and your work appropriate to our current grants criteria.  Please read our Noticeboard page for additional information and tips, particularly on the English Index of Multiple Deprivation.

Standard grants received at the moment will be considered for inclusion on the agenda for the November meeting of the Grants Committee and we will probably close the agenda for these applications at the end of September/early October, with applications received later going to the February 2018 meeting of the Committee. Large, Hospice and Village Hall/Community Centre grant applications will go to the February 2018 meeting. We operate a rolling scheme and do not have deadlines. We generally close the agenda for a meeting four to six weeks beforehand, depending on the number of applications received.

Small Grant applications can be made at any time through the year and will receive a final decision within 6 weeks.
