About this fund

The Souter Charitable Trust supports projects engaged in the relief of human suffering in all its aspects in the UK and overseas – especially, but not exclusively, those with a Christian emphasis and ethos.

Small grants may be awarded for gap year / short term projects which extend to at least one calendar year.

Whilst there are no minimum or maximum amounts, an average grant would be a small one off in the region of £1,000 – £3,000.

Who can apply
Grants are restricted to UK registered charities.

When to apply
Apply at any time. The trustees generally meet once a month.

How to apply
Apply in writing to the Trust, by post or email. Keep applications brief – no more than two sides of A4.

Exclusions
-All projects for capital building and renovation works are specifically excluded from funding.
-The personal health and educational needs of individuals are not normally funded.
-Re-application for a grant is permitted, but only after once calendar year has elapsed.
