Trustees have the power to make grants to groups or individuals in the area of benefit to alleviate deprivation and hardship. As a result of the report commissioned by the Charity from the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics and presented in 2009, the trustees now have access to detailed information about where the most deprived areas are and who needs help most.
