Grants for Local Organisations

The New Cross Gate Trust offers a small number of grants every year to our local partners – other charitable organisations offering activities and services to local people that fall within our strategic objectives. This aims to ensure that we support the sustainability of our local partners, maximise the value of different organisations’ skills and expertise within the area, while also avoiding duplication of services.

Last year we funded:
– Drop in advice sessions at Community Advice Works
– A programme of summer activities and trips for Sommerville Youth and Play
On-site English as a second language classes at the 999 Club
– Support to provide food parcels to those in need through Pie ‘n’ Mash Mutual Aid
