Project grants are available for parish social action projects, groups associated with parishes and for local joint projects based in the Diocese of Westminster.
The St John Southworth Caritas Fund can seed fund or help the development of new local social action initiatives that combat poverty or promote social inclusion. To be eligible for funding any organisation which is not a parish needs to be working in partnership or co-operation with one or more Catholic parishes in Westminster Diocese on the project for which funds are requested.
The aims of the project should fall within the strategic priorities of Caritas Westminster. These are currently:
- Food poverty and debt
- Social isolation of vulnerable groups
- Intellectual disability
- Human trafficking
- Deaf Community
- Youth isolation
Further guidance and the application form can be downloaded here.
Project grant applications are considered on a monthly basis. Applications received by the last Friday of the month can expect to hear whether a grant has been awarded by the end of the following month.
