In response to the Coronavirus, the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust have reviewed their grant criteria to enable them to spread their funds as widely as possible to help those with greatest need. The Trust awards grants to UK registered charities or organisations that are exempt from registration with projects that address specific categories set out by the Trust each year.
The next round of funding will be aimed at supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable people aged 60 and over affected by the crisis. UK registered charities with an income and expenditure of £1,000,000 and over will be able to apply for grants of £1,000 to continue their much-needed support.
The next round of funding will be open for applications from the 1st of July 2020 through to the 31st July 2020.
