Environmental Health & Social Care Local Grants Youth

The Cole Charitable Trust supports charities in the West Midlands, Kent and Cambridgeshire areas preferring to fund small charities for whom the modest grants available can make a significant difference.

The Trust welcomes applications from small and local (as opposed to regional or national) organisations, or local branches of organisations, working in the fields of:

  • social welfare, all age groups
  • housing/homelessness
  • community and environmental development
  • opportunities for young people
  • promotion of improved quality of life
  • personal or community empowerment.

Please note the Trust does not support large building appeals, animal charities, research or further education.

Grants generally range between £300 to £1,000. Occasionally grants can be outside this range.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Trustees meet twice a year in April/May, and October/November.
