Providing housing for the elderly & grants for work to help people in need
We offer grants to organisations working to prevent or relieve hardship or distress in our Area of Benefit. We welcome enquiries from groups of all sizes. We are particularly interested in working with groups with strong links to the communities they serve.
Applications need to be with us by Friday 29 April for the May Grants committee. We hope to be holding a drop in grants surgery some time in March/April so keep an eye in the website for that. Remember micro grant applications can be received and processed any time.Read More...

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.
I have lived in JBH since January this year and I find myself in a very fortunate situation that this is so. I could not wish to live in any better accommodation and I hope to be here for the remainder of my life.
