Apply for Funding

The main grant application period for 2020 is now open. We would welcome applications for projects, which explore new topics, methods, and ideas which improve our understanding of carbon monoxide exposure.

The Gas Safety Trust provides grants to a wide range of charities, voluntary groups, associations, gas related businesses, social housing associations, local authorities, statutory organisations, academic bodies and others that meet our chosen areas of focus:

  • The possible link between CO and neurological conditions
  • CO exposure risks to pregnant women and the foetus
  • CO in the leisure environment
  • CO emissions from solid fuels

We do not fund:

  • Unspecified activities. The Grant must be related to a specific programme or project that meets the Gas Safety Trust’s eligibility criteria.
  • Day-to-day administrative and/or general operational running costs.
  • Capital equipment costs
  • Sponsorship (nor can the Gas Safety Trust’s name be used for any sponsorship).
  • Individuals, except in the context of their business activities.
  • Individuals for study or educational funding.
  • Fundraising events.
  • Awards, unless those undertaken by the Gas Safety Trust or any other related body.
  • Professional conferences or professional fees.
  • Projects where the Gas Safety Trust grant support input will not make a positive impact and cannot be clearly defined. We want every £1 donated to make a difference to those most in need.
