Who Can Apply?

Lintel Trust supports the voluntary sector in Scotland by giving grants and loans to voluntary organisations, including housing associations and housing co-operatives.  Our aim is to help people live full and independent lives in their own homes.

 What Level of Grant is Available?

Lintel Trust grants are usually one-off - the normal maximum grant is £2,000 (and matched funding is a criteria for grant).  Small interest free loans  are also available, as is advice on alternative funding possibilities.

Which Groups are Supported?

  • single homeless people
  • people with physical disabilities or mental health problems

  • older people (people of pensionable age, or people over 50 with extra needs)

  • people from minority ethnic groups who are in housing need

All applications must meet the following conditions:

  • The project must relate to providing or supporting independent living in a secure home, or must be run by or closely involve a housing assocation, or must aim to improve people’s housing, standard of living or local community.

  • Organisations should have established an equal opportunities policy, and should be monitoring its efficiency.  If a formal policy is not in place, organisations must be aware of and be working towards best practice in this area.

  • All possible sources of statutory funds (ie local authority or central government) must have been explored.

  • Lottery funding should also have been considered if appropriate.
