The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust awards grants to charitable organisations for projects which support those in society who face the greatest challenges and whose opportunities are most limited. Each year the Trust awards grants to UK registered charities or organisations that are exempt from registration for projects under different specific award categories.
The current grants round is funding projects that support people who are homeless, a group which has been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. UK registered charities with an income and expenditure of £1,000,000 and over are able to apply for grants of £5,000 to continue their much-needed support.
Priority will be given to applications that help Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
The deadline for applications is the 30th April 2021.
