You can now apply for the Noel Buxton Trust £5,000 Grant. Noel Buxton Trust has been giving out grants since 1919 to support the cause of the less privileged. The Noel Buxton Trust was established by Noel Edward Buxton (later the first Lord Noel Buxton) in 1919 to achieve social and economic progress in Britain and throughout the world. In Africa, the grant is in favour of projects based in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, Sudan and South Sudan.
For over eighty years the Trust has supported organisations promoting social change and improvement. Recent grants have funded the Family Rights Group, the Community Chaplaincy Association's work with ex-prisoners, and Excellent, which works with subsistence communities in Africa to support sustainable development.
