The Austin Hope and Pilkington Trust have announced that their next round of grant funding will open on Wednesday 1st February.
During this funding round, grants of £1,000 or £5,000 will be available to registered charities that have an income of £50,000 – £1 million for projects that relate to helping the elderly. Charities can choose which grant amount to apply for, but cannot apply for both.
Charities can also only apply once per calendar year; it is recommended that charities choose the grant round which suits their project best.
The Trust runs four funding rounds each year with a different theme. For each funding round, the Trust will give priority to projects that focus on:
- domestic abuse
- prisoners and offenders
- training and education
- counselling and support
- activities for those with limited access or opportunities
The closing date for this round of applications is Tuesday 28th February.
