Welcome to Trusthouse Charitable Foundation.
We are a medium-sized grant maker, awarding around 300 grants totalling circa £2 million each year.
We were formed in 1997 out of a trust operated by the Council of Forte plc which inherited investments in the Granada Group. Trusthouse is administered by The Henry Smith Charity, but the two charities are entirely separate, and you can apply to both foundations at the same time.
Our grants programme supports projects in the UK which address issues in Rural Communities and/or areas of Urban Deprivation. Within these two main headings, we are interested in helping established projects which work in the fields of Community Support; Arts, Education & Heritage; Disability & Health Care.
Please read our Guidelines to find out more about our grants.
We also have a small budget for UK charities which are working on projects in developing countries. Please contact the office direct to discuss your overseas project as we have recently revised our overseas policy and most of this budget will now be channelled through a third party.
Please note we do not give grants to individuals or organisations not based in the UK.
