CLA Charitable Trust

Status: Open for applications


Description

The CLA charitable trust provides education, recreation and facilities in the countryside for those who are disabled or disadvantaged and particularly for young people


Key Criteria

Recently, the Trustees have found it necessary to apply even more strict criteria and they now do not consider applications for sensory gardens or community allotments or funding requests from state funded schools or other institutions.

If you have any doubt about your project's eligibility, please telephone to discuss it before submitting your appeal.

 


Eligible Expenditure

The CLA Charitable Trust was founded to encourage landowners to provide opportunities for the disabled and disadvantaged on their property. Their objectives are:

  • To promote education about  the countryside for young people from towns and cities and those who are disadvantaged.
  • To provide facilities for those who are disabled, who have learning difficulties or who are in some way disadvantaged to enjoy the benefits of the countryside
  • To support the advancement of education in agriculture, horticulture and conservation for disadvantaged people, particularly the young.

Recently, the Trustees have found it necessary to apply even more strict criteria and they now do not consider applications for sensory gardens or community allotments or funding requests from state funded schools or other institutions. Projects which are based on horticultural activities must be able to demonstrate that they provide training to a recognised qualification for the participants.

The Trustees do not normally grant money for core funding or make limited contributions to a much larger project. They prefer to fund specific capital purchases or a discrete part of a project with which the Trust can be identified.


Application Procedure

Applications can be submitted at any time. The trustees meet in February, May, August and November
