New community grant scheme

Time for some good news… DCMS is providing a one-off grant in 2012-13 for capital works in listed places of worship. The National Churches Trust is administering a share of money in the form of an open grants programme for listed places of worship outside the care of the Church of England. Another share is being administered by the Church of England through its dioceses.

Details of the programme are now available on the NCT website. Grants are available for new capital works only (e.g. extensions, facilities such as kitchen and toilets, heating etc); repairs and maintenance of existing fabric are not eligible. There are limited funds available and due to the need for all grants under the scheme to have been claimed and paid by 31 March 2013, the programme is open for application from now until 30 August 2012. There will be opportunities for decisions in May, October and December of this year.

    Sorry we do not have a website, but we were wondering if grants were available for the restoration of a kitchen and toilets for our local chapel in South Wales.
    If you are unable to help could you possibly let us have details of someone or body that may be able to help.

    I am the secretary of our Chapel here in Forge Side Blaenavon Gwent and we are looking for a grant to help us to repair our chapel. We need to repair the inside walls due to damp and green mould on the walls.
