Grants for the conservation of churchyard structures
Next closing date: Friday 30th October 2015
To be eligible, the churchyard must be under the responsibility of the PCC and the structure must be listed separately from the church building. If the wall, monuments, railings or gates are in a closed churchyard and responsibility of the Local Authority they do not qualify for a grant. Works of a cosmetic nature or soft landscaping are not eligible.
Grant awards under this programme are usually up to £8,000. Please use the contact details below if you need to discuss your grant request before you apply. The Grant Programmes Report 2013 provides further detail on how our funds have previously been awarded.
