What does The Talbot Trusts fund:
The Talbot Trusts support registered charities and other not for profit organisations who provide services and facilities that will directly benefit persons who are sick, convalescent, disabled or infirm and which are not readily available to them from other sources.

What does The Talbot Trusts not fund:
Grants will not normally be considered for research, educational projects and major fund-raising and general appeals.

Who is eligible for funding:

We make grants to fund charitable work.
We primarily fund registered charities but are willing to make grants to other types of not for profit organisations, such as Community Interest Companies (CICs) or constituted community groups if they can explain how they would use our funding for charitable purposes.

Who is not eligible for funding:

We are unlikely to fund national organisations unless reassurance can be
provided that the organisation is locally focussed.

We have received a grant in the past, when can we apply again?
The Trustees are unable to commit themselves to approving recurrent grants. Each grant application will be considered on its own merits.

We have been refused funding in the past, can we apply again?
Yes, the Trustees consider many applications and sometimes there are insufficient resources to fund them all at one particular meeting. If in doubt, please contact the Clerk to the Trustees for advice.

When do the Trustees meet?
The Trustees next meeting will be in late May 2021 to review the latest applications.
