|Percy Bilton Charity
This charitable trust makes grants in 3 main areas:
- Disadvantaged young people (aged under 25): projects which encourage young people who are homeless/unemployed away from crime/substance misuse, or facilities for recreational activities for disadvantaged young people
- People with disabilities (including learning disabilities and mental health conditions): residential care/respite care for children and adults with disabilities or long-term mental health conditions
- Older people (aged over 60): day centres/residential care for older people with dementia or other age-related illnesses, or projects which encourage older people to remain independent
There are 2 levels of grantmaking – Large Grants, for grants between £2,000 and £5,000 and Small Grants, for grants of £500 and under. The Percy Bilton Charity makes capital grants only (i.e. equipment/refurbishment – no grants will be made towards running expenses).
There are no deadlines – you can apply at any time, and Small Grants applications are considered monthly (Large Grants will take longer to be considered). For more information on how to apply, visit the Percy Bilton Charity website.
