The Peter Stebbings Memorial Charity ("the Charity") gives grants exclusively to charities registered with the U.K. Charity Commission. Projects funded are usually delivered in London, and also in the developing world. Generally grants go to charities where the grant will make a difference and where the Trustees can see how the money is being used. Please note that charities not registered with the U.K. Charity Commission are not eligible to apply.

Other geographical areas within the UK are sometimes considered if there is a personal geographical connection with one of our trustees. If you are applying from outside of London (U.K. only) please email us first to check your eligibility:

Grants are made at regular intervals during the year and the total level of grants at present is approximately Pound 350,000 a year.

The Trustees are concerned that their grant support will make a real difference to the work of applicant organisations.
Generally, the Trustees assist small to medium-sized charities with annual incomes of up to Pound 5m.
The Trustees fund projects, but are willing to consider core funding for organisations whose work they know.
Local (London) charities have been helped where there is a link with the Trustees' work or knowledge - this means London-based local charities, and not regional ones.
Restrictions and exclusions
The Charity will not assist:

-large national or international charities
-animal welfare
-publications and journals (unless as part of a supported project)
-general appeals
-any charity whose beneficiaries are restricted to particular faiths
-educational institutions, unless for a particular project the trustees wish to support

The main areas of interest are:

-Social welfare
-Mental health/counselling
-Drug and alcohol therapeutic support
-Offender support
-Community regeneration
-Vulnerable families, women and children

In the Developing World
The Charity supports charities which operate in the developing world. However, it receives many such approaches and the following guidance is offered to provide more focus to those considering making an application. (This is in addition to the exclusions listed in Grants Policy).

Education. The Charity would not normally directly assist a school or college, but is interested in supporting access to education for groups or communities who have limited access, through distance, poverty, discrimination, or exclusion.

Basic skills and tools. Assistance towards increasing skills to enhance a community's capacity and independence. Particularly to build local assets such as village schools, clinics, wells and sanitation.

Health. The Charity would not normally directly fund a clinic or hospital, but is keen to assist basic training in health care, disease prevention, and in low tech/ low cost proven solutions to endemic problems (eg trachoma treatment, immunisation programmes).

Sanitation, irrigation, hygiene and access to clean water. The Charity is interested in schemes to improve such basics, particularly with simple and repeatable measures. This includes measures for power, light and cooking.

Women. Projects which enhance women's education where opportunities have been limited, life choices, economic power, reproductive rights and safer childbirth. Microfinance projects aimed at women.

Help for marginalised communities. For instance the Dalits in India, and pastoralists in east Africa.
