They are particularly interested in neighbourhood projects, community arts projects, projects involving community service by young people, or projects set up by those who are socially excluded.

They aim to refresh the parts that other funding sources can't reach, especially new ideas and unpopular causes.Because they do not appeal to the public for funds, they can take risks. Because the Trust is mostly run by volunteers, it can afford to make very small grants, without their funds being eaten up by administration costs.
