Agnes Hunter Trust’s Main Grants Programme Open to Applications

Following a review of its funding policy in 2018, the Agnes Hunter Trust currently invites projects that fall within one of two key areas of interest:

  • Helping disabled people
  • This might include (but is not restricted to) charities assisting specific groups of people, for example those living with learning disabilities, mental ill health, specific types of cancer, cerebral palsy, autism, visual or physical impairments.
  • Assisting with the education and training of disadvantaged people aged 16 years or over who have left school
  • Disadvantaged people include those whose life experiences or environment have so far denied them opportunities to develop the skills to support themselves and contribute positively to society.

Priorities for the Trust include services or projects that focus on:

  • Self-management and awareness.
  • Advice, support and information.
  • Life-skills training.
  • Employability, particularly in relation to IT, literacy and numeracy.
  • Helping people participate and contribute to their community.

Applications are accepted from registered charities operating in Scotland with an income of less than £2.5 million per year.

Funding can be used towards an organisation's core costs or direct project costs, including staff salaries and overheads.

The deadline for applications is 15 March 2019 (5pm).
