The Beatrice Laing Trust is one of the Laing Family Trusts that are administered jointly, with this Trust supporting projects that are in the areas of relief of poverty or advancement of the Christian faith.
The joint administration means that an application to the Beatrice Laing Trust is considered as an application to all Laing Trusts, with administrators and trustees deciding which Trust is most suitable for any grant offered.
The Beatrice Laing Trust state that they welcome applications from:
- Organisations, in particularly Christian organisations, offering practical action to help those in need, offering direct support to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society.
- Charities providing practical services to people with physical, mental and learning difficulties and their families/carers.
- Organisations providing opportunities for training and development to young people, in particular those who are disadvantaged or ‘at risk’.
- Small-scale overseas development projects aiming to build the capacity of local partners to develop long-term sustainable solutions to local problems in countries in the developing world.
Grants offered tend to be between £1,000 and £5,000 and the Trust will only accept applications from registered charities.
There is no formal application but the Trust offers clear guidance on the type of information that any application should offer. This can be found on the Trust’s website.
