Grants for individuals

We have made changes to the Barnwood individual grants. The items we fund, who can apply, and how we process our grants, have all been updated.

Take up an opportunity

Please be advised that our Grant for You is currently under review, and we are unable to accept any applications.

Please note that we do not have an opening date at this time, but the grant is likely to be closed until the summer. Please check this page for updates.


Here are a range of links which may help you if you are in need of support:

Citizens Advice offer free, confidential and impartial advice on a range of issues.

The Turn2Us Grant Search can help you to find funds based on your circumstances or experience.

StepChange can give free debt advice and help with budgeting.

The Lightning Application Portal is a secure online portal which allows you to find and apply for support from multiple providers, quickly and easily.


Household items

It is no longer possible to apply directly to Barnwood Trust for a grant for household items.

We work in partnership with local specialist organisations who help Barnwood give grants for the home to disabled people and people with mental health challenges in Gloucestershire, who are on a low income.
