The Souter Charitable Trust supports projects engaged in the relief of human suffering in all its aspects in the UK and overseas – especially, but not exclusively, those with a Christian emphasis and ethos.

Grants are restricted to UK registered charities only. 

Small grants may be awarded for gap year / short term projects which extend to at least one calendar year. All projects for capital building and renovation works are specifically excluded from funding. The personal health and educational needs of individuals are not normally funded.

Applications should be kept short, 2 sides of A4 is sufficient. The trustees are looking for a brief outline of the project aims and what the funding is required for. A budget may be included and a copy of your latest audited accounts should be included.

Whilst there are no minimum or maximum amounts given an average grant would be a small one off in the region of £1,000 to £3,000.

No application forms are required. To make an application, apply in writing to Souter Charitable Trust, PO Box 7412, Perth, PH1 5YX or by e-mail to
