The Skelton Charity now open for applications.

Updated: Apr 24

Deadline for applications is the 5th June 2024 at 5pm

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.

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

Equipment; from organisation’s supporting the elderly, people with disabilities and from youth groups.

  • Small specific capital projects of proven viability from community groups.

  • 10% towards overhead costs – considering the cost-of-living crisis, applicants can request a 10% contribution (of the total amount requested) towards overhead costs (utilities etc).

The Trustees do not usually fund:

Large building appeals

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.
