Westerleigh United Charities

WESTERLEIGH UNITED CHARITIES

You, a relative or a neighbour may be eligible for a payment from the Charities.

What is it?

The Trustees of Westerleigh United Charities administer funds which have been bequeathed to the Parish by a number of benefactors since the seventeenth century.

Every June, the Trustees make an annual distribution from the interest on these funds to those people in the Parish, usually elderly, who are needy and for whom a little extra helps.

Westerleigh United Charities may also make small one off grants to deserving young people under the age of 21, who live in the parish of Westerleigh and who are entering into apprenticeships or training, to assist with the purchase of books, tools or equipment.

Who can apply?

You have to live in the Parish of Westerleigh and have done so for a minimum period of 3 years. For the annual grant, you should be a pensioner or have a disability and need a little extra to help you manage. For the one off grant, you should be under 21 and need a little extra to help you with the purchase of books, tools or equipment.
