Founded over 300 years ago, The Radcliffe Trust offers grants to charities and other not-for-profit organisations based in the UK. Grants are given with the aim of promoting traditional craft, heritage, and classical music in the UK by supporting people to access training, education and skill development.
The Radcliffe Trust has two grant making programmes. Under their Music Scheme, The Radcliffe Trust supports projects that involve music education and training for children and adults with special needs, youth orchestras, and projects at secondary and higher levels. Under their Heritage & Crafts Scheme, the Trust will support projects that involve craft and conservation training, practical projects, and strategic projects which demonstrate clear benefits to individuals and to the sector.
In both of the Trust’s schemes, grants will only be given for specific project costs, with most grants given falling in the region of £2,500 – £7,500. Trustees meeting twice a year to review applications, and applications must be made through an online form on the Trust’s website.
