Grants to support the conservation and sustainable use of church buildings in the UK, focusing on larger and more complex projects with priority given to urgent structural repairs or the introduction of kitchens and accessible toilets.
Grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 are available for urgent structural repairs costed at more than £100,000 including VAT.
Projects that introduce kitchens and accessible toilets to enable increased community use, costed at more than £30,000 including VAT, will also be considered. Grants will cover up to 50% of the project cost.
The funding is for projects which can demonstrate how they meet the outcome in line with the new strategy:
- Preserving heritage.
- Promoting sustainability.
- Inspiring support.
The next deadline for applications is 1 July 2019. Places of worship of any Christian denomination and age can apply. Applications will be considered from listed and unlisted Christian places of worship across the UK.
Guidance notes and an online application form can be found on the Trust’s website, https://www.nationalchurchestrust.org/. Applications can be made at any time and are considered three times a year.
