The Trustees of The Mrs Smith & Mount Trust seek to achieve their aims by making grants to charities working in the fields they wish to target.

Grants are made in three main areas:


The Mount Fund

The criteria of the Mount Fund has changed.

Applications made after 1st April 2023 will be assessed based on the new criteria.  No further applications will be accepted under the old criteria.

This is the main funding programme.  Applications under this heading are considered three times a year in March, July and November under the following priority areas:

  1. Mental Health
  2. Homelessness
  3. Community Youth Services
  4. Refugee and Asylum Seekers

See the How to Apply to the Mount Fund page for the specific criteria for each of these categories.

The next meeting of the Trustees is due to take place on 16th November 2023. Applications have now closed for this meeting.

The Mrs Smith Fund

The Mrs Smith Fund is distributed by way of block grants to registered charities working with individuals the Trustees aim to assist.  The grants are then distributed by the recipients in the form of small hardship grants to individuals in need in accordance with the criteria of the Mrs Smith Fund. The Trustees are currently not accepting any new applications for this fund.
