Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust Opens for Fourth Round of 2018

3rd September 2018

The fourth round of 2018 opened on 1 September to applications from registered charities whose income is £1 million and above.

This round focuses on the category ‘community’ with priority given to projects focussing on homelessness, domestic abuse, prisoners/offenders/refugees and asylum seekers.

There is particular interest in applications that address rehabilitation and mental health needs.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for this round.

The Trust prefers to give to a charity’s headquarters; however, the Trust will consider applications from a local branch if it has a separate charity number.

Please note that grants are very rarely awarded to local charities that are not known by any of the Trustees.

Charities can only apply once a year.

Applications will be accepted from 1 to 30 September 2018.
