1) Objective

Set up in 1995, the Ashworth Charitable Trust is a small grant-making charity. It was created primarily to support humanitarian causes operating locally, nationally and internationally. For the most part, the Trust looks to fund projects and does not provide any core funding for organisations. On average, they distribute around 25-30 grants per year for international projects (in total around £100,000).

Thematic areas are: (1) Social, physical, or educational rehabilitation; (2) Support for illness or disability; (3) Victims of torture or human rights abuses; (4) Women’s refuges; (5) Micro-loans and business enterprises in the developing world; and (6) Humanitarian aid. The Trust prefers to help fund humanitarian projects and activities that share this vision and that have any of these characteristics: (1) the project or activity has been initiated by people living at the grassroots who are empowered to find the solutions to their own problems; (2) the project has a relatively simple, clear set of objectives and actions that further the vision of the Trust; (3) the project develops the capacity of individuals, their communities or their institutions helping them to help themselves; (4) the project enhances the learning of individuals, their communities or their institutions; (5) the project’s ‘beneficiaries’ participate in the management and running of the project or activity; and (6) the project’s ‘beneficiaries’ have suffered, or are suffering, from injustice, poverty or personal circumstances that are difficult for the individual to overcome without assistance.

They have funded: (1) Charities addressing social, physical, or educational re-habilitation; (2) Charities offering information, support, relief or equipment for illness or disability; (3) Charities supporting those members of society who may be considered as isolated, vulnerable, at risk or disadvantaged; (4) Charities supporting victims of torture or human rights abuses; (5) Charities helping to support carers; (6) Holidays for disadvantaged children; (7) Youth clubs, especially in disadvantaged areas; (8) Women’s refuges, Homeless shelters, Orphanages; (9) Charities supplying micro-loans, or other business enterprises in the Developing World; and (10) Charities helping to provide access to medical care, food or water supplies in the Developing World.

2) Eligibility

Actions can take place in various countries across the globe (preferably in Africa and Asia).

4) Budget

Grants are usually between £3,000 and £5,000. On average, they distribute around 25-30 grants per year for international projects (in total around £100,000).

5) Application
