We are a family grant making foundation which supports charities in England and Wales working to raise the quality of life and provide greater opportunities for the young, the elderly, the disabled and the disadvantaged.

The Foundation has awarded over £121 million in grants since it was established in 1960. Each year we give just over £3.5 million to capital projects that deliver a real community focus or provide facilities to support those in need.
