Transforming Churches and Communities

Bolton - Sir James & Lady Scott Trust

What we fund

Beneficiaries of grants must be within the Borough of Bolton.

Only registered charities, or not-for-profit organisations who are in the process of becoming a charity, will be considered.

The Trustees give priority to projects which help disadvantaged people or communities in Bolton, or provide for the relief of poverty. These have included projects which help elderly people or people with disabilities, young people, children and ethnic minority groups.

The Trustees will consider applications from organisations concerned with the Arts, especially where projects are likely to bring benefit to the community or to improve access or involvement by disadvantaged people.

The Trust does not consider applications from individuals or for Church restoration, medical appeals, expeditions and scholarships.

Grants are usually made on a ‘one off’ basis for capital items or specific projects. Occasionally grants may be concurrent for more than one year, but not usually more than three.
