Because of Covid-19 and travel restrictions in England and France, we will not make grants for pilgrimages during 2021. Applications for other activities which are continuing (within the rules) will be considered on a case by case basis. If circumstances allow, we hope to resume support for pilgrimages in 2022. Application forms and deadlines will be available on this page in the autumn. 

If you have received a grant for a trip that has been cancelled, or have any question regarding the fund, please email us at

We hope you are safe, keeping well and looking after each other.
