We make grants:
To help as many people as possible, our grants are contributions to pilgrimage costs, not meant to cover the whole cost of a pilgrimage. The grants we make are modest, usually a few hundred pounds.
We consider applications from people of all ages and from all cultural and religious backgrounds.
When considering applications, we like to hear about:
We pay no attention to an applicant’s marital status, disability, race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin), religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, or whether the applicant is pregnant or on maternity leave.
If you wish to apply for a grant from the Trust, please contact us.
Our Trustees consider applications at their meetings, usually three times a year. If an application is urgent, for example because the pilgrimage dates mean an earlier reply is needed, the Trustees can consider the application between meetings.
Over the years, we have helped pilgrims from different backgrounds: people needing special care to travel, school groups, university students, teachers, people considering a call to priesthood or training for ordination, priests and religious.
