The Yapp Charitable Trust

Grants offered only to registered charities with a total annual expenditure of less than £40,000.
Will not fund work that does not focus specifically on one of our priority groups.
Only fund running costs.
Grants are normally for a maximum of £3,000 per year and will fund for up to three years.


  • Elderly people
  • Children and young people aged 5 - 25
  • People with physical impairments, learning difficulties or mental
    health challenges
  • Social welfare – people trying to overcome life-limiting problems of a social, rather than medical, origin (such as addiction, relationship
    difficulties, abuse, offending)
  • Education and learning (with a particular interest in people who are educationally disadvantaged, whether adults or children)

They will not fund work that does not focus on one of the above priority

They only make grants for ongoing core funding. Core funding is defined as the costs associated with regular activities or services that have been ongoing for at least a year. They can not fund new projects, extra services or additional delivery costs. This includes creating a paid post for work that is currently undertaken on a voluntary basis or rent for premises that are currently cost free.

They can only offer grants to registered charities that have been formally
established for a minimum of three years. Newly registered charities may
apply but the organisation must have appointed a management committee
and adopted a governing document at least 3 years ago.

They prioritise:

  • Work that is unattractive to the general public or unpopular with other funders
  • Services that help to improve the lives of marginalised, disadvantaged or isolated people
  • Applicants that can demonstrate an effective use of volunteers
  • Charities that seek to be preventive and aim to change opinion and
    behaviour through raising awareness of issues, education and
  • Applicants that can demonstrate (where feasible) an element of self
    sustainability by charging subscriptions/fees to service users
