The Percy Bilton Charity

Date: 13th August 2010

The Percy Bilton Charity offers grants to UK registered charities whose primary objectives are to assist disadvantaged youth, people with disabilities and older people.

Social workers may apply on the behalf of individuals who have a disability or mental health problem, or who are over 65, for grants to purchase basic furniture, equipment and clothing.

The Charity has two programmes for organisations to apply to:

- Large grants - offering one off payments for capital expenditure of £2,000 and over

- Small grants - offering up to £500 towards furnishings and equipment for small projects. This programme is more suitable for smaller organisations.

There is no set deadline, but Board meetings are held quarterly in March, June, September and December to consider large grants. Applications may be submitted at any time and will be considered at the next appropriate Board meeting. Applications for small grants are considered monthly.
