Funding for Community Based Projects – 11th December 2019 (UK and Overseas)

The Hilden Charitable Fund awards grants of an average of £5,000 to causes working at community level in the UK and developing countries which are less likely to be able to raise funds from public subscriptions.

Current UK funding priorities are:

  • Homelessness,
  • Penal Affairs,
  • Asylum Seekers and Refugees,
  • Community-Based initiatives for Disadvantaged Young People Aged 16 to 25.

Overseas, Hilden concentrates on projects in developing countries working on community development, education, and health and particularly welcomes those that address the needs and potential of girls and women.

Only applications submitted on the form supplied on the website will be considered.

Hilden accepts applications at any time but the closing date for applications to be considered at the January / February meeting of Trustees is the 11th December 2019.

Projects funded in 2018 included:

  • Community based initiatives for disadvantaged young people (aged 16-25) such as The Furniture Recycling Project, Gloucestershire and Watford Citizens Advice Bureau for their apprentice scheme
  • Projects helping destitute refugees such as Azadi Trust Birmingham and the Destitution Project Bolton
