The Ouseley Trust was formed with the aim to maintain a high standard of choral services in the Church of England, Church of Wales and Church of Ireland, doing so through the provision of grants.
The Trust supports causes through offering grants to either individuals or groups, with grants made in the following areas:
- Courses for individuals or groups
- Scholarships or bursaries
- Fees for choir schools
- Purchase of liturgical music
- Other projects of an innovative kind in line with the Trust’s aims
Applications are dealt with in a fairly traditional manner with a paper application form having to be requested from this Trust, this request can however be done via email or telephone. The completed paper application must be submitted via the post.
The Trust offers grants of varying sizes but are usually small grants of a maximum of £5,000.
Applicants are able to apply before two yearly deadlines, usually at the end of February and June. It is advised to review the online guidelines before requesting an application form.
