NCT Grant Programmes 2018

Published on 4th October 2017

Many of our clients may be unaware of the scope of grants which are available through the National Churches Trust.  Full details are available on the website but here is a summary of the programmes:

Repair Grants

Awards between £5K and £40K towards the cost of urgent and essential structural repair projects.  Projects must have an estimated cost of at least £100K (including VAT and fees) to qualify.

Community Grants

Awards between £5k and £25 for projects which introduce facilities.  In particular kitchen and toilets, to enable increased community use of places of worship.  Projects must have an estimated cost of at least £25K and have Faculty and/or other permissions in place.

Partnership Grants

In partnership with 24 local charities in England and Scotland we give grants of £2.5K and £10K towards smaller repair projects and the installation of kitchens and toilets.

Project Development Grants

This programme offers awards of up to £10K to support churches at the outset of planning a project – investigating issues and exploring options up to RIBA Stage 1 – and in preparing to apply to major heritage funders such as the HLF.

Maintenance Grants

A new programme offering grants for proactive repair.  These encourage listed churches to act on small, urgent repairs identified in their QI Reports.  Grants of £1K to £2.5K are available to applicants with projects costing under £10K.
