When deciding whether to agree to a grant the Trust takes into account:-

The objective: Is it, in the opinion of the Trust, worthwhile, within the scope of the Trust, and a realistic goal?
The need: Is there obvious hardship?
Self help: Will it help someone who is trying hard to help themselves?
The benefit: Would assistance be of lasting value?
