Transforming Churches and Communities

Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside - THE SKELTON CHARITY

LCVS administers the Charity and the fund supports registered charities from within Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside, particularly favouring:

  • Equipment for organisations supporting the elderly and people with disability and for youth groups,
  • Holidays for disadvantaged children and carers

The trustees prefer to make capital rather than revenue grants and are inclined to favour specific capital projects of proven viability rather than making contributions to general expenditure.  It is their preferred policy to make relatively modest grants to a wide number of applicants rather than large grants to a small number of applicants.

Grants are only made to legally constituted, registered charities and not to individuals.

Applications from charities in successive years are not viewed favourably.

The Trustees do not usually fund large building appeals or revenue expenditure.

The Fund usually opens for applications between March and May each year.  Applications are considered at the Trustees’ meeting in July.

Completed applications must be received before 5pm on Friday 24 May 2019.
