The aim of the trustees is to support charities in the fields of medical research, education and the arts. In addition, social welfare is supported, especially work known to the trustees. If charities work locally, priority is given to those in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. We support registered charities, including Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) and those correctly registered as charities in their own countries.

Good governance in charities is fundamental to their success.
A charity is best placed to achieve its ambitions and aims if it has effective governance and the right leadership structures. Skilled and capable trustees will help a charity attract resources and put them to best use. Good governance enables and supports a charity’s compliance with relevant legislation and regulation. It also promotes attitudes and a culture where everything works towards fulfilling the charity’s vision.
It is the aim of this Code to help charities and their trustees develop these high standards of governance. As a sector, we owe it to our beneficiaries, stakeholders and supporters to demonstrate exemplary leadership and governance. This Code is a practical tool to help trustees achieve this.

Phil Godfrey – Grant Administrator for the John Moores Foundation recently came to Wirral to deliver a presentation on their funding as well as take part in a Q & A.
Phil covered the background, and context to the fund, and also mentioned the 50th Anniversary celebrations. He told us that the fund is in constant review, and showed us the new grant application guidance booklets.
Take some time to look at the new application form and guidance for Awards for All, if you are thinking of applying, and have done so before.
