Guernsey Community Foundation Grants Programme
Our main Guernsey Community Foundation (GCF) Grants Programme provides grants of at least £5,000 to local charities so that significant challenges or needs within the Bailiwick can be addressed.
Grant applications should show how the service or project, if funded, will address a proven area of concern, fill a gap in service provision within the Bailiwick, or improve the way a charity operates so that it can better meet the needs of the community or its service users.
The John Ramplin Charitable Trust
We act on behalf of the Pargiter Trust to distribute funds to charitable organisations working with disadvantaged older people in the Bailiwick. Areas supported are:
Improving health and wellbeing – reducing isolation, providing hot meals and refreshments and helping older people to stay active through sports, arts, recreation, social clubs and volunteering;
Improving access to facilities, advice and training – supporting projects providing respite for carers, supporting Good Neighbourhood and befriending schemes and improving access to information and IT for older people, particularly where this involves intergenerational work;
Overcoming problems – helping older people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to an illness, injury, disability, bereavement or financial difficulty.
