The Areti Charitable Trust makes grants so that children and young people living in the area covered by Lancaster City Council and who are from challenging social and economic backgrounds may have opportunities to experience and learn more about the natural world as part of an organised activity.

There are two funding rounds a year; deadlines for applications are 30 June and 31 December.  However, the trustees are willing to be flexible, and they will consider suitable applications outside these dates; please contact the Clerk to the Trustees for advice.

Guidelines for applicants and how to apply are here.

Registered Charity Number 1175627.

Grant awarded

Naturally, grant applications are very rare at present, but one application that the trustees approved at their last meeting was to award £3,410 to Hermitage Field Community Meadow. This newly formed charity is aiming to restore 5.5 acres into a species-rich wildflower hay meadow beside the Crook o’Lune, engaging local schoolchildren in the planting.
