LCT makes grants to disadvantaged children and young people aged between 7 and 19 to enable them to participate in Christian residential events.

Trustees look for:

  • a clear indication of social deprivation
  • clear evidence of financial need

and where possible:

  • a supportive Christian youth group in their home situation
  • a financial contribution by the child/young person/family and financial support from other sources

LCT does not normally support the full cost of an event. We recommend that you find other sources of funding. E.g. the church, local grant making trusts, activity centre or event bursary support, fundraising activities, etc.

To submit a grant application please complete the form.

The application form will enable the trustees to make an informed decision.
Please note that grants are only given to UK residents for activities in the UK.
If you are requesting support for a number of young people, all going to the same event there is no need to repeat parts 1 & 2, simply repeat part 3 as required.

Please include clear information for each applicant, giving as much evidence as possible about both their social and financial needs.

Grants are given for individuals – we do not give to general group applications.

Applications are not accepted from family members.

The information provided will only be used to assess suitability for a LCT grant.

If a grant is agreed, the payment is made after the event upon receipt of a brief report to confirm attendance and giving some feedback.

Please let us have your report within 4 weeks of the event.
