The Peter Kershaw Memorial Bursary

This is an annual award made by the Trustees in memory of the Trust's benefactor. The bursary is intended to fund the costs of a youth leader, though other forms of youth work will be considered. Trustees favour applications from charities whose income is less than £1,000,000.

Organisations with charitable status in Greater Manchester are invited to apply for the bursary, which will be awarded on the basis of up to £25,000 for year 1, £15,000 for year 2 and £10,000 for year 3.  

Priority will be given to organisations that can show a firm shared element of funding beyond year 1 and where the appointment creates new opportunities. 

Applications will be considered by the Trustees in November and the first payment to the successful applicant will be made the following April. 

The application should take the form of a completed application form and be accompanied by a detailed budget for the proposal and a copy of the organisation's latest audited accounts. All applications should be sent to the Secretary to the Trustees at
