General Welfare

We support a wide range of activities that benefit disadvantaged people and communities, with particular interest in:

  • Charities which strengthen and support family relationships
  • Rehabilitation of offenders, especially young offenders
  • Early intervention to support the welfare of children in disadvantaged families and looked-after children
  • Helping young homeless people to move forward
  • Maintaining active living and independence for older people (note: this does not include help with medical and mental health problems or disability)
  • The welfare of those who care for others (note: we generally prioritise applications for this work from charities working on a national level)
  • Developing tolerance and understanding between faiths and communities and the promotion of social cohesion
