The Frieda Scott Charitable Trust provides grants to charities and community groups in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, as well as the area covered by the old county of Westmorland.  Established in 1974 and based in Kendal, the Trust is a long-standing funder of local community groups and Trustees continue to welcome applications from voluntary/charitable organisations working on the ground to meet the most urgent needs in their area.

DECEMBER 2015 FLOODS – Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the recent floods right across our beneficial area in South Cumbria.  We have made an immediate donation of £50,000 to the Cumbria Community Foundation Flood Appeal (www.cumbriafoundation.org) and would encourage individuals, families and charities in need to apply for funding from them. 

Particular consideration will be given to projects supporting the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in our society.

We encourage all applicants for funding to contact us first to talk through your plans – please ask for Naomi Brown on 01539 742608 or info@fcsct.org.uk
