Who We Fund

The Trust's grants reflect Mr. Joel's wishes as expressed in the Charity's Objects. To view the Charity's Objects please visit the Charity Commission website www.charity-commission.gov.uk. Only charities registered with the Charity Commission are considered.

Details of the grants made by the Trust during the year ended 31 March 2016:

Our Objects are grouped as follows:

Disability, Elderly and Serious Illness

The Trust has a strong emphasis on helping charities which offer care and support for people who are terminally ill, or have a serious illness, the elderly, adults and children who have mental health problems or a learning disability. We give help to both children and adults with physical disabilities and offer funding towards specialist equipment, respite care, holidays, education and core costs.

We support both adult and children's Hospices specifically those based in the South East of the UK and funding is given to all aspects of hospice care including running costs.

We help the elderly who are vulnerable and isolated and in need. Funding is offered towards respite for carers, general care and support plus specialist equipment.

Please note that applications will only be considered for the benefit of people in the South & the South East of England.

We are happy to consider funding from organisations who offer care and support for ex-servicemen and women who have been injured or traumatised from past and recent conflicts. Mr. Joel himself served in the First World War with the 15th Hussars.

Medical research projects form only a small part of what we fund.

Within the above criteria we will consider support for specialist equipment, salaries which are related to nursing and general care. We will consider funding towards some building and refurbishment costs but only once the appeal has reached at least half of the total budget.

N.B. Around half the Trust's grants are distributed under this Object. Typically grants range from £5,000 - £30,000.

Horseracing

The major portion of funding under this Object is given to the welfare of those in need within the racing industry. This is generally aimed at people who are elderly and retired, injured and those on a low income plus young people who need support.

Other applications outside this area may be considered as long as it is related to either the welfare of people in the industry or connected to the welfare of Thoroughbred Race Horses.

Jewish Charities

Mr. Joel (the founder) was Jewish and his wish was to benefit charities which promote the Jewish faith and to help Jewish people in need. We consider applications from Jewish charities throughout the UK that help the elderly, disabled adults and children and young people. Please note payments are only made to benefit charities in the UK and not in Israel.

South Africa

The Trust also operates in South Africa. This area of our Objects reflects the Joel family's long involvement in the mining industry in South Africa. Predominantly funds are given to Early Childhood Development Projects and applications are administered on behalf of The Directors by Giuliana Bland at The Childwick Trust’s Jim Joel Fund in South Africa.

Giuliana Bland can be contacted via email or by telephone on (0027) 011 704 6539.

The Trust also provides funding for South African residents to promote education through Charitable Institutions in South Africa or the U.K.
