Grassroots Trust Limited will comply with all aspects of the Gambling Act 2003; with funding granted in accordance with Grassroots Trust Limited’s Authorised Purpose.
The following are examples of purposes that are deemed unauthorised for grant consideration. This list is not exhaustive but rather is intended as a sample.
Grassroots Trust Limited’s venue key persons cannot have any input into or influence over Grassroots Trust Limited’s grant process. Venue key persons are as defined in the Gambling Act 2003.
Venue key persons cannot provide goods or services to third parties and be paid from grant money which is derived from Grassroots Trust Limited. For example, a Grassroots Trust Limited venue could not provide room hire to a hockey club if the hockey club plans to use grant proceeds to pay for the hire fee.
Venue key persons cannot be involved in decisions about who will provide goods or services to a third party, if payment is being made from grant money that is received from Grassroots Trust Limited. For example, if a venue key person was also a committee member of a community organisation that received a grant from Grassroots Trust Limited, the venue key person could not have any input as to which painter the community organisation employs if the painter is to be paid from grant money.
