Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust - Ann Rylands Small Donations Programme

Aims/priorities: The Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust offers grants to UK based charitable organisations that work in the following areas of interest:

  • Serious illness - to assist many fundraising initiatives by charities and charitable institutions which help those suffering from serious illness. The needs addressed include nursing, residential facilities, assessment and treatment, and support and advice.
  • Disability - to make life easier for the disabled, to improve their quality of life, and to promote integration with the able bodied.
  • Disadvantage - to help those less fortunate in society to enjoy new experiences, and to provide support to help them to lead more fulfilling lives and to realise their potential.
  • Overcoming adversity - for work with people experiencing particular difficulties in their lives, who are vulnerable and in need of support.
