Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust

The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust awards grants to UK registered charities for projects undertaken in the UK. In response to increased demand, the Trust has restructured its Grants programme and now offers four application rounds a year. Information on all the funding rounds as well as the categories for 2018 and 2019 can be found on the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust website. Categories change yearly and usually run on a three year rolling programme.

The category for 2019 is Children and Young People with the third and fourth grant rounds refelating specifically to young people.

In 2019 priority is given to projects that focus on:

  • child exploitation
  • mentoring and support
  • clubs and activities

Round 3 £1,000 grants opens for young people aged 11-25 from 1 to 31 July.

Round 4 £5,000 grants opens for young people aged 11-25 from 1 to 30 September.
