What We Do

We are a registered charity that provides financial relief to individuals in need who are sick, disabled, convalescent or infirm and live in one of the parishes of West Berkshire.

Who is eligible for a Grant?

The Trust has a modest income from investments and is able to make small grants for items, services or facilities that will provide relief for individuals who meet all of the following criteria:

  • There must be an identified medical and financial need – we are unable to consider applications that only meet one of those needs.


  • The individual must live in one of the parishes of West Berkshire.

The Trustees can consider applications for a wide variety of items, services or facilities so long as the need is clear. However there are certain restrictions, for example, it is not possible to consider applications to repay debt or cover council tax, rent or mortgage payments.
