St. Giles Charitable Trust Fund

  • Work which is supporting people on a low income and in crisis as a direct result of the cost of living crisis and providing a safety net from poverty
  • Please note, groups who were previously awarded a grant through St Giles Charitable Trust fund in 2022 will need to wait until 2024 before they can apply to this fund again.

Closing date: Midday on Monday 30th October 2023
