The Dulverton Trust
The Trust awards grants to UK charities registered in Scotland, England and Wales. Single year grants range from £25,000 to £35,000 with preference given to medium sized charities, meaning charities with an annual income between £200,000 and £3m. Below are the Trust’s current categories.
- Youth Opportunities
- General Welfare
- Kenya and Uganda (please note this category is restricted to charities with which the Trust has an existing relationship)
- Peace and Humanitarian Support (please note this category is closed until the end of 2020)
Youth Opportunities is the largest category and aims to support charities that help socio-economically disadvantaged children and young people develop life skills that enable them to thrive. General Welfare supports charities that work to strengthen family relationships, work with offenders, support older people’s independence, support the welfare of carers and promote community cohesion. The Conservation category funds charities working to support the health and resilience of the UK’s wildlife habitat, and Preservation supports heritage craft training, particularly where it may benefit a disadvantaged group. Trustees meet three times a year to consider grant proposals in February, June and October. There are no deadlines or closing dates and applications are accepted throughout the year, although the Trust recommends submitting applications 2-3 months in advance of the meeting date.
