The Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust is inviting applications for projects that support refugees and asylum seekers. They are committed to funding projects supporting the Homeless, and Refugees and Asylum Seekers in 2021.
In 2022, in light of the particular hardships faced by young people working in the arts because of the pandemic, and in light of the continued discrimination highlighted by Black Lives Matter, they are focussing on these specific groups within the arts.
They aim to give grants to those in society who face the greatest challenges and whose opportunities are most limited.
As there is an ever-growing need for grants to support the essential work that many charities do, they are gradually making their criteria and priorities more focussed to ensure that they can give the limited resources that they have to projects that they believe will do the most to help those with greatest need.
- Minimum operating income and operating expenditure: £100,000.
- Maximum operating income and operating expenditure: £1,000,000.
