1) Objective

The Trust was set up in 1986 with equity left by the late Philip Henman. Today, the Trust spends all of its available grant funds on projects that are of a duration of three to five years and which are operated by major UK charities concerned with long-term overseas development. Long-term overseas development includes projects committed to education, skills development, and the development of basic infrastructure and technology.

Previously supported projects include: advancing the education of girls to reduce child marriage, develop communities and increase life opportunities, literacy acceleration programmes, sustainable food security for the poorest and most marginalised women farmers, safe sanitation supplies for indigenous rainforest villages, improving maternal and child health, providing clean and safe water and educating children on hygiene, giving agri-business training as a means of income generation and promoting social welfare and inclusion.

2) Eligibility

Eligible are major UK- based charities (defined as having an expenditure of over £100,000 PA), who are concerned with long-term overseas development and who require partnership funding for projects lasting between three and five years.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Africa, America and Asia.

4) Budget

Grants are split into annual payments (between £3,000 and £5,000 p.a.) with a maximum total of £25,000. Once the grant has been approved the organisation will be guaranteed an annual grant for the duration of the project,as long as receipts and reports are sent back to the Trust in the way that is specified. Costs between 2-%-80% can be applied for.

5) Application

To apply for a grant, applicants need to complete the online application form. Shortlisted candidates may be contacted to provide more information. Once a grant has been awarded for a particular project, the organisation cannot apply for a further grant in respect of that project. The Trust has limited funds and can therefore only commit to two new long-term grants per year. Applications should be submitted before the 10th of September each year. The Trustees will decide which grants are successful by 30th November. Successful applicants will receive the first installment of their grant shortly after the start of the following financial year (April 6th).
