Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust


The Catherine Cookson Trust supports a wide range of activities including education and training, environment and conservation, arts and culture as well as general charitable purposes. The Trust's principal aim is to identify and meet the local needs of the area in which Dame Catherine was brought up and resided. In particular the Trust supports work with young or disadvantaged people.
Grants awarded are between 250 and 100,000. There is no standard application form but written applications, enclosing a SAE should be sent to the correspondence address provided.
There is no set format or time limit for applications, which enables many groups to apply for a grant. The Trust does not publish any guidelines or application forms, so each application is considered individually.
