Small grants available to local clubs! Central Social and Recreation Trust provides small grants to local sports clubs and organisations to improve the conditions of boys and girls under the age of 21, particularly those lacking access to recreational or other leisure time occupations because of poverty.
The Trust's purpose is defined as follows:
“providing or assisting in the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation in the interests of social welfare”.
Its objectives are:
1. To improve the conditions of life of boys under the age of twenty one and of all other persons who by reason of their poverty or social and economic circumstances are otherwise unable to obtain facilities for recreational or other leisure time occupations.
2. To provide facilities for recreational or other leisure in the interests of social welfare and in particular but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing to provide equipment and maintain gymnasiums or buildings to be used for recreational or other leisure time occupations in London or other towns.
3. To provide instruction or supervision for such boys and any other persons as aforesaid in such recreational or other leisure time occupations.
4. To organise any activity for the purposes of providing facilities for such recreational or other leisure time occupation for such boys and other persons as aforesaid.
5. Since 1962 the Trust, which now of course includes ‘girls’ as well as ‘boys’, together with its ‘Trustees’, remain committed to financially supporting young people in accordance with the terms of the Trust.. The Trust makes Grants from the annual interest it generates from its investments.
