1. When setting up a charitable trust, there is no difficulty in limiting the trust to a specified category of persons, such as those from a particular locality or over a certain age. This merely is a permissible definition of the category of beneficiaries. Similarly, it is perfectly permissible to limit the trust to persons in financial need. Also, a permissible limitation is to limit to vulnerable adults or those with learning difficulties. All are permissible objects of charity. Many trusts have limitations of the nature you have specified and they are perfectly permissible in law.
