Miss Agnes H Hunter's Trust - Main Grant Programme
The Agnes Hunter Trust was established to support registered charities delivering health and social welfare projects in Scotland. Applications must fit within one of the two policy areas: charities that help disabled people such as those living with learning disabilities, mental ill health, specific types of cancer, cerebral palsy, autism, visual or physical impairments; charities that assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people aged 16 years or over who have left school. This includes those whose life experiences or environment have so far denied them opportunities to develop the skills to support themselves and contribute positively to society. Priorities for the Trust include services or projects that focus on: self-management and awareness; advice, support and information; life-skills training; employability, particularly in relation to IT, literacy and numeracy; helping people participate and contribute to their community.
