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 criteria of the Mount Fund has changed.
Applications made after 1st January 2020 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:
- Mental Health
- Health in the Community
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 the 26th June 2020. This meeting will open for new applications from the 6th April 2020.
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.
All funds from this Programme have now been allocated and no further invitations to apply will be sent out.
