The Lady Neville Charity provides grants that will make a clear and significant contribution to grass-roots charitable organisations working in designated priority areas.

If you are a registered charity or not-for-profit organisation, you may be able to apply for a one-off capital grant of up to £1,000.  

Who can apply?

The Lady Neville Charity is pleased to welcome applications from registered charities or not-for-profit organisations in the UK whose total annual income is less than £100,000, and the total project cost is less than £10,000. Organisations applying must be working in at least one of the following three priority areas:

  • Local Heritage projects which help local groups to conserve and restore their landmarks, landscape, traditions and culture;
  • Performing and Visual Arts Groups involved in undertaking a particular activity in any field in this area;
  • Any charitable activity taking place in communities where the Skinners' Company has existing work or historical links (The City of London, 'The Square Mile'; London Boroughs of Camden, particularly Kings Cross, Enfield, Hackney, and Hounslow; West Kent, particularly Tonbridge & Malling, and Tunbridge Wells; Romney Marsh, excluding East Sussex).

They will consider grants for capital items such as equipment, and will also consider grants for general funding towards one-off anniversary events that are not part of core activities. This does not include regular annual events. 

The Committee considers applications twice a year in May and November. You are welcome to discuss a potential approach with the Grants Administrator.
