Peter Kershaw Trust

Ordinary Grants

These grants are made for a wide variety of purposes under the general heading of "social welfare", e.g. to assist people with medical conditions, disabilities, addictions, to help the aged, youth work etc. 

Applications for new work are welcome and the Trustees give special consideration for "pump priming" requests.

Whilst the Trust has no maximum amount of funding that it gives to individual organisations, applicants may want to view our latest Annual Accounts to see the average amount of funding.

There are two distinct time periods for the receipt and determination of applications. Applications received from October to the end March will be considered at the May Trustees meeting. Applications received from April to end September will be considered at the November meeting. Please note that for 2022 there will only be one grant application window with grants received by 31 March 2022 being considered at the May 2022 meeting.



All applications will be acknowledged - please avoid the use of "Signed for" delivery as there is not always someone available to accept the delivery.

Please note that if your application is unsuccessful you cannot resubmit this within the same financial year.

For meeting dates please see Dates
