Samaritan Grants

The Trust will consider applications from organisations and other bodies to assist specific individuals within the area of benefit who are ‘deserving and in need’, grants are usually no more than 200 pounds (or sometimes up to 400 pounds) and are usually to assist individuals with the purchase of furnishings or domestic appliances. Grants are normally only paid to the organisation supporting the application or directly to a supplier.

Applications for Samaritan Grants can be made at any time.

There is no application form for Samaritan Grants.  Applications should be made in writing to the Chamberlain at the Bridge Trust office containing as much information as possible.
