Barchester's Charitable Foundation


Barchester's Charitable Foundation helps older people and other adults with a disability across England, Scotland & Wales. Grants are to help people lead more fulfilled lives and reach their full potential.

The priority is to make a difference to the lives of older people and other adults with a physical or mental disability; supporting practical solutions that lead to increased personal independence, self-sufficiency and dignity.

This year the focus is on connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community. Due to Covid-19, they will be awarding more part grants in order to help more people and groups in these challenging times.

Who can apply

The fund helps small community groups and small local charities. They do not have a formal definition for a small charity, but if a charity has financial reserves in the hundreds of thousands or millions, it is very unlikely that they would be able to help.
