Souter Charitable Trust was set up by Sir Brian and his wife Lady Elizabeth in 1992. The trust supports projects for the relief of human suffering in the UK and overseas and, as committed Christians, Sir Brian and Lady Elizabeth are particularly interested in projects that also promote spiritual welfare.
Whilst there are no minimum or maximum amounts given an average grant would be a small one off in the region of £1,000 – £3,000.

Grants are restricted to UK registered charities only.
Current legislation does not permit the trustees to give direct grants to overseas organisations as they are unable to carry out the due diligence required of them.
Small grants may be awarded for gap year / short term projects which extend to at least one calendar year.
All projects for capital building and renovation works are specifically excluded from funding.
The personal health and educational needs of individuals are not normally funded.
Applications should be kept short, 2 sides of A4 is sufficient. The trustees are looking for a brief outline of the project aims and what the funding is required for a budget maybe included and a copy of your latest audited accounts should be included.
