Who needs Grants?

The short answer is: most charities and voluntary bodies operating in our local communities.

Extract from letter dated October 2016 from one beneficiary involved with youth work:


...This year we have found ourselves struggling once again for funding.

Having to raise funds every year is becoming increasingly difficult with the financial climate the way it is but we feel that it is so important for the young people. We believe the town would suffer a real loss if we were no longer here. If it were not for people like you, we wouldn’t have managed to stay as strong as we have over the years...

In recent years, cuts to County and District funding have increased, so that many, particularly small, organisations are under threat. These include youth clubs, the relief of homelessness, relief of poverty, and many other projects concerned with care in the community. These are the charities which DSCT endeavour to help.
