The Trustees have decided not to focus on any particular funding categories for 2013/14 but instead would rather support more small, local charities in preference to those which are large, have their own paid fundraisers and a more national focus. Further details are on the Policies and Aims page. At present, only 29% of the Trust's funding is going to charities with an annual income of less than £50,000 and it is hoped to increase this percentage in 2013/14.
