Grant application

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:

  1. a clear indication of social deprivation
  2. clear evidence of financial need
  3. where possible, a supportive Christian youth group in the home situation

The more information you can give us, particularly in these 3 areas, will help the application.

Things to know

  • If you are requesting support for a number of people all going to the same event, there is no need to repeat the whole form each time. For the second and subsequent person/people, just fill in your name, address and postcode in part 1 and then complete all of part 3.
  • The information provided will only be used to assess suitability for LCT grants(see Privacy Statement published on website).
  • Please submit the application at least 4 weeks before the event
  • 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.
  • It is the aim of the charity to give a response within four weeks of receipt of the application.
Grant Application


LCT rarely supports an application made in full. We recommend that you find other sources of funding. Eg. the church, local grant making trusts, activity centre or event bursary support, fundraising activities, etc.
