The Hollowford Trust is a Christian Trust Fund managed by members of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Sheffield (which covers most of the county of South Yorkshire, and small parts of East Riding, North Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire).
Who Can Apply for a Grant?
This fund aims to assist young people aged between 10 and 25 years who live in or near the Diocese of Sheffield, to develop their physical, mental and spiritual capabilities, so that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society and so that their conditions of life may be improved. Individuals can receive up to £300 and groups up to £400.
The Hollowford Trust is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable people and follows Diocesan guidelines to ensure this. Where it gives grants to organisations working with children, young people and vulnerable people, these are made on the understanding that risk assessments have been made by the organisation.

Begin Your Application
It is important that you provide the trustees with as much information as possible to help them make a decision on your application. We have created an example application form to help applicants get an idea of the level of detail the trustees require to be able to fully consider applications. We recommend that you read this example document before you begin to complete your form.
Young people should apply on their own behalf where possible, but we will accept applications from parents, youth leaders and others where appropriate.
N.B. – Please allow 20-30 minutes to fill in the form and note that it cannot be saved and returned to later.
