Fabric grant funding made easier for churches

Changes have been announced making it easier for parishes to apply for funding to support fabric repairs. During 2020 administration of the Wolfson Foundation funds for fabric repairs of churches will move from the Cathedral & Church Buildings Division of the Church of England to the National Churches Trust.

The move to the National Churches Trust will result in a simplified funding application process for fabric repairs. Parishes will be able to submit one application form and be considered for up to two fabric repair grants. The Church of England’s conservation grants programmes administered by the Cathedral & Church Buildings Division (ChurchCare) will continue with its focus on conservation of historic interiors.

All parishes with ChurchCare grants will be able to claim their grant from ChurchCare. For all questions about existing grants contact John Webster, Cathedral & Church Buildings Division Conservation Grants Administrator. From 28 January 2020, new applications for fabric repair grants should be sent to the National Churches Trust. More information here

The next conservation grant deadline is for paintings and wall paintings, and is Monday 27 January, and then bells and bell frames on Monday 17 February.
