Organisation grants

We are working on ways to support your organisation in your COVID-19 response project for Gloucestershire.  

We want to support the innovation and strength of local voluntary sector organisations and charities who are stepping up or re-imagining their activities and making a huge difference to the wellbeing of people in our county.

We are providing significant additional funds for Gloucestershire at this time, and evolving our grants scheme for organisations in response to the immediate challenges.  Barnwood Trust is also joining with a number of other funders locally to figure out how best to get necessary funds to where it’s most needed.

The Gloucestershire Funders online application

Barnwood Trust is a part of Gloucestershire Funders, a new collaboration between eight charitable foundations and organisations who can provide funding for charities, groups and activities, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We want to support you by making it as easy as possible for you to apply for funds, without having to make lots of separate applications.

If you need funding for your organisation, we want to hear from you. This could be to keep your organisation going during COVID-19, to make a response to the crisis, or for investment to strengthen your organisation after this is all over.

More information before you apply

Your application will be considered by all eight funders and a representative of the group will be in touch with details of the outcome of your application within 3 weeks of submission.

If you would like more information or to have an initial chat before you apply, please call Barnwood Trust’s Director of Partnerships Georgia Boon on 07516 030263 or email
