Supporting health & healing in and around the City of York

The Purey Cust Trust is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales as a 
Charitable Incorporated Organisation, number 1159079
The Trust is a grant-making charity that provides one-off grants to individuals, organisations and charities to promote the advancement of health and healing for those living in and around the City of York area. This includes support for projects which may seek to prevent, treat, alleviate or cure disease, injury, infirmity or related conditions and disorders whether physical or mental.
Grants can be made to any individual or charity in or around the City of York. We make grants to all sections of the community including children, young adults and older people. Applications must provide some health or healing benefit or must be related to health education.  Please see our How to Apply page for further information and advice. Applications for individuals should ideally be supported by a third party referee, eg a social worker or health professional and most all grants will be paid either to a supplier or to a third party rather than directly to an individual.
The Trust makes grants to support all medical conditions or to support education about all or any medical conditions. Grants may be made for example, to purchase specific equipment to alleviate the impact of a particular condition (either for an individual or a group), to provide a particular health related service (eg Helpline or support group), or to provide for the education of health professionals (eg continued professional development, training of specialist nurses). The Trust generally makes one-off grants within the region of £100 to £10,000. All applications are assessed on their own merit. We are very sorry but we are unable to support core costs or building projects.
Please read the above guidelines carefully. If you then feel that your project or request meets our charitable objectives, please go to our How to Apply page. There you will find further information on how to apply together with an Application Form. Applications are considered at regular intervals throughout the year, although an application may take up to three months to be considered, so please apply early if possible. In very urgent cases, Trustees have the flexibility to consider applications outside of meetings.
