For Artists, Nurses and Gentlewomen

Apply for a Grant


Please note: this is a small charity and our grants are modest. At the moment our average grant is under £300 and not everyone is successful.

Applicants must:

  1. Complete an application form.  Incomplete forms will not be processed.
  2. Provide a letter of support from a third party. For artists, support letters are typically from tutors, curators or gallerists. . 
  3. Provide evidence of benefits if you are in receipt of any. We regret we cannot return documents to you.
  4. Give a realistic estimate of the price of the item you intend to buy.

NURSES - our funding is now channelled through Cavell Nurses' Trust . Nurses, midwives or healthcare assistants, working or retired in the UK can apply online.  Learn more at the Cavell Nurses' Trust website.


WOMEN IN HARDSHIP -  this grants programme is temporarily closed.  We hope to reopen in July 2022.  Updates will be posted here.
