The Skelton Charity | Now Open for Applications

The Skelton Charity is a charitable trust empowered to make grants only to legally constituted charities established in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside, including the unitary authorities of Blackpool, Blackburn, Warrington and Halton. They are now open for applications.

Although the Trustees enjoy complete discretion when considering applications, they are inclined to favour applications for:

  • Equipment; from organisations supporting the elderly, people with disability and from youth groups
  • Small specific capital projects of proven viability from community groups.

The Trustees do not usually fund:

  • Large building appeals
  • Revenue expenditure

and do not make grants to individuals.

It is their policy to make relatively modest grants to a wide number of applicants, which tend to be in the range of £500 – £3,000 but can be, exceptionally, as high as £5,000. The total annual income at their disposal is approximately £100,000.

Deadline: Completed applications must be received by 5 PM on Friday 12 May 2023.
