Preservation and Social Welfare Grants from Pilgrim Trust

25-Apr-2017


The Pilgrim Trust are continuing their call for applications from UK groups and organisations whose work involves social welfare and preservation. 

Established over 80 years ago, The Pilgrim Trust provides grants each year to charities and other public bodies.

More than half of the grants go toward UK Heritage; projects which look to preserve architecturally or historically important buildings, or projects working to preserve historically significant artifacts or documents. The main emphasis is on projects that conserve historical buildings, monuments and collections.

The rest of the funding goes toward Social Welfare needs, where they focus their support on projects helping women and girls. They take a special interest in early intervention which addresses the concerns before it develops and grows, and the grants are for projects that have a positive impact on the lives of women and girls facing severe and multiple disadvantage, particularly where their vulnerabilities put them at risk of offending.

Funding is available through two programmes:

Main Grant Fund

Grants above £5,000 are available

Small Grant Fund

For requests of £5,000 or less

Grants can be used for project costs; revenue costs, which includes staff salaries; costs related to initial fact-finding work for organisations seeking to recover important buildings and monuments, and capital costs.

Because the scheme is a continuous rolling programme, there is no deadline and so applications can be accepted at any time.

For more information and how to apply, visit the Pilgrim Trust website.
