Posted in Funding

Funding is available for UK charities working in the Swire Charitable Trust‘s three core funding areas of: Opportunity, Environment, and Heritage. Charities can also apply for support if they are providing a critical response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis or are facing severe short-term funding pressures as a result of this.

Grants can be awarded on a restricted or unrestricted basis and the Trust is willing support core costs, capital expenditures and salaries.

Heritage funding covers two main areas:

Regeneration through restoration

The fund are keen to fund projects that have legitimacy from a heritage perspective as well as the potential to deliver meaningful social and economic benefits to deprived communities or disadvantaged people.

Grass-roots organisations that strongly engage with their local communities are favoured.

Safeguarding endangered skills

Funding for charities that are working hard to protect and cultivate the skills and knowledge underpinning the UK’s heritage sector.


The Trust runs a rolling programme with regular grant making meetings, so there are no deadlines. Once an application has been submitted it will be assigned to the next available meeting. Applicants can expect to receive an outcome within two to three months of submission.
