Grants are usually in the order of £5 - £10,000. The Trustees are HSBC fund managers and grant allocations are made on the recommendation of a diocesan review committee. Meetings are held 3 times a year (usually in February, June and November). The current closing dates for applications are 2 November 2018, 8 February, 7 June, 1 November 2019.
