Grant criteria

Autism, climate change, disability & violence. Trustees prefer to support schemes that can become self-sustaining.

Grant details

The Trustees accept applications for practical projects in the field of autistic spectrum disorder and Asperger syndrome. The Trustees are keen that schemes supporting adults and young people on the autistic spectrum include service users in decision-making. Trustees do not generally fund research into autistic spectrum disorder. In 2008 the Trustees extended their grant-making to the field of climate change and its consequences. They made a large grant to the University of Cambridge to construct a new global economic model of a world free from dependence on carbon. At present this is the only climate change project that Trustees have chosen to support. In 2014, the Trustees began to explore the field of disability and violence. This year they funded two projects in this area, both concerned with the response to domestic violence. Trustees expect to fund other carefully chosen projects in this field in due course.

Application procedure

Proposals are considered alongside those that result from their own research and contacts with expert individuals and organisations working in this field.
