The Ann Rylands Small Donations programme, run by the Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust, makes grants of up to £1,500 to support smaller charities across the UK providing support for older people, people with disabilities or others facing difficulties in their lives.
Applications are only accepted from charities registered and operating within the UK. The Trust does not accept applications from individuals, faith-based charities, or from charities whose annual income exceeds £5 million.
Successful applicants are awarded grants of up to £1500 towards the charity’s core costs or to support a specific project. This programme does not award multi-year funding or provide substantial sums for capital appeals.
The Trust will prioritise applications from charities which offer practical support for:
- older people
- people with disabilities or living with serious illness, or
- people facing challenges with mental health, social exclusion, homelessness or other difficulties in their lives.
