Small maintenance grants for churches – National Churches Trust

The National Churches Trust, which supports the repair and revitalisation of church buildings for the benefit of all the community, has launched its new Maintenance Grant Scheme.

This is a pilot programme, in partnership with the Pilgrim Trust, offering awards of between £1,000 and £2,500 to encourage churches to act on small, urgent maintenance issues and repairs to listed church buildings, as identified in a recent Quinquennial Inspection Report, condition survey or report by a gutter management contractor, and costed at between £2,000 and £10,000.

Proposed works must be to the main listed church building, and applicants must be able to show they have already raised 50% of the total repair costs, and to have obtained two quotes for the works.

There will be three funding rounds in 2017 and the closing date for this funding round is the 4th January 2017.
