What we can't fund

Organisations which are not registered charities.

Individual requests.

Sponsorship request.

International appeals.

Animal welfare.

Environmental charities.

Expeditions or overseas travel.

The promotion of religion. We might not exclude charities which have a religious element, if their objectives demonstrate a wider benefit to people experiencing disadvantage.

Schools and colleges (except for projects that will benefit disadvantaged students and are clearly additional to statutory responsibilities).

Activities which are the responsibility of a statutory body or the islands’ governments.

Activities which duplicates or overlaps a service already provided.

Applications for salaries which would apply to the applicant.

Charities which have received one of our grants in the previous 12 months, or have received three years continuous funding.
