aims to improve the life chances of vulnerable women and girls.

Aims/priorities: The Pilgrim Trust aims to
improve the life chances of vulnerable women
and girls. They are interested in supporting
early interventions that address their needs before these become too deep-seated and projects
that give women and girls greater opportunities and greater control over their lives. These projects
will take an early action approach to addressing the social inequalities women and girls face. They
particularly welcome applications from organisations who have demonstrable experience and
expertise in working with women and/or girls who face two or more disadvantages.
Who can apply? The following organisations can apply:
 Registered charities in the United Kingdom
 Organisations that are exempt from registration and recognised public bodies
 Registered Friendly Societies
Trustees are keen to support areas of the country where financial support from other sources is
difficult to obtain and welcome collaboration between organisations.
Grant amount: There are two levels of funding:
 Small grants of less than £5,000
 Main grant scheme of more than £5,000
There is no average grant and the Trust receives more applications than ‘it can possibly fund’. On
average, only one in five of all appeals that fit within the guidelines is successful.
Application process: Two stage application process

Deadline: Applications are accepted at any time during the year. Trustees meet to consider
applications four times a year.
