National Churches Trust’s Foundation Grants Programme 2020 Opens for Applications

| Return|

Grants of between £500 and £5,000 are available for repair projects on buildings that were originally built as churches and are open to the public on a regular basis. The funding aims to support interventions to investigate or address small problems before they turn into large repairs.

To this end, the Trust provides funding for:

  • Urgent maintenance work.

  • Items identified as high priority within a Quinquennial Inspection Report/survey reports/other sort of report.

  • Small investigative works/surveys.

Projects can cost up to £10,000 (excluding VAT), and match funding of at least 50% is required.

Applications from places of worship in the Trust’s priority areas of North East England, Northern Ireland and Wales are especially encouraged but the programme is open to applications from across the UK.

Applications can be made at any time between now and 30 October 2020.
