Ladbrokes Coral Trust

Education & Employment Health & Social Care Older People

Ladbrokes Coral Trust (formally Ladbrokes in the Community Charitable Trust) was established in 2003. Its funding comes not from the Ladbrokes company, but via the fundraising efforts of the head office and shop staff, customers and ‘Event Days’.

The Trust supports a range of causes ‘with the overriding requirement being that the causes supported operate and serve the community in which the shops and businesses of Ladbrokes Betting and Gaming Ltd or Ladbrokes e-Gaming Ltd operate’.

Grants are commonly given in the following categories:

  • Health: research/treatment, hospice services and disability support
  • Education: supporting people who are disadvantaged or who have disabilities
  • Community: with a focus on projects for people who are older or homeless or social activity projects for people who are at risk

To receive funding, the support of your local Ladbrokes shop should be secured in raising funds on behalf of your cause. The shop will submit your application to the board of trustees for review. Trustees meet every four to six weeks to consider grant requests from shop and head office fundraisers and registered charities across England and Wales.

For more information please contact your local Ladbrokes shop. Their Annual Report can be read on the Charity Commission’ register.

This fund is not managed by Funding for All. Please click contact the funder directly for more information.
