Grant Giving Overview
Bristol Charities is committed to working to provide support to people and communities throughout these complicated and taxing times.
Grants for Individuals
The Charity gives grants to individuals of all ages and families living in Bristol. Our grants make a difference in a very practical way to improve the lives of those experiencing hardship.
Our carers funding can fund individual carers breaks or respite activities. We also fund Carers organisations, funding a range of activities and initiatives that benefit Carers.
Community Chest Funding
We will be awarding grant funding to Voluntary and Community sector groups and Charities. These grants should be for projects/activities/initiatives to further improve the quality of life for communities in Bristol.
Educational Grants for Young People
These grants are for Young people up to the age of 25 to create access to opportunities.
Barry T. Jones Fund for Charitable, Independent Schools
Funding is available for schools for imaginative and creative projects. Applications that can identify a benefit for young people in the wider community are prioritised.
“I cannot thank you enough for helping me get a proper bed. I have been on a camp bed for 5 weeks. I have a spinal problem…that has got worse. Today I got an orthopedic three quarter bed, with a nice metal frame. It is so comfortable. Thank you so much. I medically needed a bed and I am looking forward to sleeping in comfort.

Dear Sir, Madam and all who do the magnificent work at Bristol Charities,
You recently donated £120 to my mother, who has a damaged spine and neck; making sleeping very painful.
I got a memory foam from Bristol Bed Maker with other funds to make up the shortfall. It is wonderful!!! Thank you so much it really makes a difference!

Thanking you very much for the carpet you supplied to me. After many months of homelessness, I am now settled in my new flat.
Your generosity and kindness has helped me greatly and the contractors did a great job. Once again, Thank you.
