Grant Enquiry Session : 29 Nov, ONLINE

November 29, 2021 | 11:00 am 12:00 pm

An introduction to the National Churches Trust Grant Programmes for Places of Worship

Funding Regular Maintenance, Urgent Repairs, Project Development and Facilities Installation

Sometimes we take our Places of Worship for granted, that they will always be there, that they will just take care of themselves. Maintenance plans and procedures can seem like a daunting prospect and are easily put off as we get on with the more important day-to-day stuff… Until, that is, the roof starts leaking or bits of masonry start falling off!

This ONLINE workshop is an introduction to the Grant Programmes at the National Churches Trust. From repairing a roof to helping to install an accessible toilet – and many other projects – our grants help keep churches open for worship and community activities and allow them to continue to serve people and communities in all sorts of ways. We provide grants for projects costing anywhere between £500 and over £100,000 for Places of Worship in the UK to carry out maintenance and urgent repairs.

The session will cover:

  • What the Grants Programmes fund;
  • Which is the right Grant Programme for your project;
  • What you will need to have in place to be able to apply;
  • How to apply;
  • Timescales and deadlines;
  • What makes a good application;
  • What happens after you submit an application.

The presentation will last about 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and discussion afterwards.

Anybody involved in looking after historic places of worship is able to attend. The event is free of charge and the presentation (in pdf form) will be emailed to all attendees afterwards.
