The Claremont Trust seeks to support groups which give practical expression to their faith in the life of society in Scotland and overseas, for example small innovative faith-based enterprises seeking to tackle social need and promote inclusion at local level. The Trust is ecumenical and was founded on strong convictions of Christian social responsibility. It welcomes applications from any faith group. The Trust also supports initiatives of groups which are working towards a fairer and more just world. Its resources are comparatively slender, and it distributes around £10,000 each year in grants.
