The Henry Smith Charity is a grantmaking trust awarding in excess of £30million of grants annually throughout the UK.
We aim to bring about lasting change to people’s lives, helping them to benefit from and contribute to society. We achieve this by funding organisations that work with people to reduce social and economic disadvantage.
We want to help people for whom other sources of support have failed, been inappropriate or are simply not available. To achieve this we aim to make grants that work towards one or more of our key values.
Empowering people, encouraging integration and personal independence, helping people to recover and move on.
Creating opportunities and life chances
Raising aspiration – equipping people with new skills, unlocking and enabling potential, and providing the means to improve life circumstances.
Strengthening and connecting communities and making people feel valued, providing opportunities for social connections and relationships, encouraging participation and inclusion.
