The Beatrice Laing Trust
The Trust’s focus is on the relief of poverty and the advancement of the evangelical Christian faith, both at home and abroad. Financial support is given to a wide range of charities seeking to relieve poverty in its broadest sense, both throughout the UK and overseas.
Grant recipients include organisations giving practical help those in need, offering direct support to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society including: the homeless; the elderly; former Servicemen and women; ex-offenders.
They also support 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 and small-scale overseas development projects.

How to apply
The Laing Family Trusts are a group of four grant-making trusts (Beatrice Laing Trust, Kirby Laing Foundation, Maurice & Hilda Laing Charitable Trust and Martin Laing Foundation) sharing a single administration. An application to one is therefore considered as an application to all. Your application will be directed to the most appropriate of the Trusts. Application is by letter, accompanied by a concise proposal (usually about 3 - 4 pages). Details of what should be included in this are on the funder website.
