Percy Bilton Charity

The Percy Bilton Charity provides capital grant funding to UK charitable organisations in the following areas:
1. Disadvantaged/underprivileged young people (persons under 25):
o Supported housing schemes and educational and training projects to encourage disadvantaged young people who may be homeless and/or unemployed away from crime, substance/alcohol misuse and homelessness; and
o Facilities for recreational activities and outdoor pursuits specifically for young people who are educationally or socially underprivileged or disadvantaged.
2. People with disabilities (physical or learning disabilities or mental health problems):
o Residential, respite care, occupational and recreational establishments for children, young people and adults with physical or learning disabilities, or enduring mental health problems.
3. Older people (aged over 60);
o Day centres, nursing and residential homes, sheltered accommodation and respite care for the frail or sufferers from dementia or age-related disorders; and
o Projects to encourage older people to maintain their independence.
The charity provides two grant programmes:
1. Large Grants - one off payments for capital expenditure of approximately £2,000 and over. The majority of grants fall within the range of £2,000 to £5,000. Applicants must be a UK registered charity to apply for a Large Grant; and
2. Small Grants - awards of up to £500. To apply for a Small Grant applicants do not need to be a UK registered charity but must be charitable by nature. However, applicants are required to supply a reference from a registered charity or from a Council for Voluntary Services. 
PLEASE NOTE: the Charity prefers to use its funding to complete projects. This means that minibuses, building and refurbishment works are only considered in the final stage of the fundraising appeal once the applicant has a shortfall of £15,000 or less. Preference is given to funding specific items of furniture and equipment (excluding office items) which the Charity can fund in their entirety.
Applications may be made at any time.
Applications should be made in writing on the organisation's headed notepaper and include the information detailed in the Charity’s guidelines.
