The Trust can provide grants towards the conservation and maintenance of certain local historic gardens or the implementation of projects ranging from new public gardens to advice and support of existing sites. In many cases, our grants are part of larger applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund or matching gifts to encourage others to assist with the overall fundraising objectives. Grants are awarded provided the project itself and the specific site meet certain criteria. In all cases, the garden or site requiring funds must be publicly accessible for some portion of the year. For more information about Criteria and Terms or to download an Application form click the relevant button below.
In the last five years the Trust has awarded grants totaling £7,800.
