Main Programme and Fast Track Grants
The Trust runs two grant programmes; both aim to support projects that will:
Make a positive difference to the lives of people who face significant disadvantage and have limited choices and opportunities, for example because they lack skills, have difficulty in accessing resources or face discrimination.
