The Charity was registered in May 1988, so we have already celebrated our 25th Anniversary since inception. The Charity was formed with the following Charitable Objectives :
"To make grants to such Charities and such charitable purposes as the Trustees shall in their absolute discretion decide".
The Charity restricts its operations to areas within Dudley and Staffordshire, and is particularly keen to help local causes in Kinver and Stourbridge.
The Charity will consider applications from the DY6, DY7, DY8, DY9, DY10 and DY11 Postcode areas only, and further details are on the Grants Policy webpage.
It offers help through two programmes, one for small grants, where small sums can make a significant difference, and a procedure exists for funds to be made available quickly, where required, and a second programme for larger applications, which are non urgent, and may also require special consideration due to the amounts involved. The larger non urgent applications are considered at the next full Trustee Meeting after receipt, which are held twice a year.
Full details of our Grants Policy, and Grant Criteria, and How to Apply for a Grant are detailed on the relevant pages.
