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.
Update January 2023: the trust is receiving an increasing number of applications for activities based in nature and in the local landscape that raise awareness of environmental challenges such as biodiversity loss and climate change. The trustees are minded to direct the major part of the trust’s income to this kind of project, but are still willing to consider more traditional outdoor activities.
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.
