Hilden Charitable Trust to Accept Applications from 30 May

Hilden Charitable Trust has announced instead of holding two funding rounds this year, there will be only one round which will open on 30 May.

The Fund aims to address disadvantage by supporting causes which are less likely to raise funds from public subscription or statutory services.

Applications will be accepted from the following groups providing they have a total annual income of less than £250,000 in the last three years and they are registered and operating within the UK:

  • Registered charities.
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs).
  • Community Interest Companies (CICs) limited by guarantee, not by shares.
  • Charitable Companies (must be registered both as a charity and a company)
  • Excepted charities

Grants will usually be in the range of £5,000 to £7,000 per year for up to two years. Unrestricted grants of core or project funding are available. However, to be eligible for unrestricted funding all of an organisation’s work must meet the Fund’s criteria. All unrestricted grants must be used for charitable purposes.

Activities must fall into one of two programme areas:

  • Asylum Seekers and Refugees – for organisations working to provide essential services which help meet the needs of asylum seekers and refugees and support their integration/participation in the wider community.
  • Penal Affairs  for work “through the door” where organisations go into prisons with projects and support to help prisoners (especially women) cope and/or maintain family bonds and to be better able to resettle positively when released. Post-release projects which support positive settlement and reduce the risk of re-offending are also welcomed.

The application window opens 30 May (10:00) and closes 11 July 2024 (15:00).
