The Trust always welcomes new applications, the Trust especially wishes to encourage more applications from disabled groups.

There are three forms available for grant applications:

Completed applications should be emailed or sent to the Secretary of the Trust, see contact us.

The Trustees meet twice a year in April and October to consider the applications and award grants. Application should be submitted by 31 March and 31 September for consideration at the next meeting.

Like all charities, the activities of the Trust are bounded by Government legislation. Any grants made by the Trust must be for charitable purposes. For example, this excludes any applications for the support of expeditions which can be regarded as purely recreational or exploratory. A clear scientific, educational or other charitable purpose would have to be demonstrated. Likewise, no grant can be made for the improvement of premises which are not generally available to the mountaineering community.
