Organisations supporting people in challenging circumstances across Dentdale can apply for grants of up to £20,000 from the Frieda Scott Charitable Trust.
The Trust welcomes enquiries from both well-established and new groups which directly deliver programmes and services for the benefit of local communities.
To be eligible, organisations should be either registered charities, formally constituted community groups or not for profit organisations providing demonstrable community benefit across the South Lakeland District area or the old County of Westmorland. Further information on eligibility can be found on the website –
“The money can be used in a number of ways. Previous recipients include Kendal based Manna House, which supports the homeless, vulnerably housed or lonely, and Temple Sowerby’s Victory Hall, which needed help with damp proofing and the installation of a stairlift”, explains director Helen Carter.
“The application process starts with a phone call, to discuss plans and eligibility” she continues. “And we’ll help throughout the process.”
Anyone interested in applying for funding should call Celia Forsyth on 01539 742608 or email her at
