The National Churches Trust supports a wide variety of projects through their grant programmes. From repairing a roof to helping to install an accessible toilet - and many other projects - their grants help people to continue to serve, and to serve better, their local communities. They now offer four types of grant - Cornerstone, Gateway, Foundation, and Preventative Maintenance.
Cornerstone - For urgent and essential structural repair projects with estimated costs of at least £100,000 that will help places of worship become wind and watertight, and for installing kitchens and toilets with estimated costs of at least £30,000, to improve access for all.
Gateway - To support churches in their project development up to RIBA stage 1; supporting local church trusts; and essential repair projects with estimated costs of between £10,000 and £100,000.
Foundation Grants for Maintenance - Small grants to support small, urgent maintenance and repair issues or to carry out small investigative works costing upto £10,000.
