Stoodleigh Church Repairs 2019

Procedures for Emergency and Small Grant (Up to £1,000) Applications

The Trust has recently benefitted from a legacy and from this has established a fund to help Places of Worship to progress emergency and small repair jobs as quickly as possible. Grants of up to £1,000 are available. The need for emergency repairs could arise from many causes – wind, water ingress, subsidence etc. For example, it could be to acquire a tarpaulin to cover a sudden hole in the roof, or for special equipment to tackle the effects of a flood. It is not proposed to try to define a list of causes. Similarly, with small repair jobs, we would not propose to define a list of eligible items other than to say that the application should relate generally to the fabric of the church. If in doubt regarding eligibility, please contact the Hon. Sec. by telephone or email.  As time will be of the essence, a short and simple application process is in place.
