Once a year the Trustees of ACT assess the application forms which must be submitted by the last working day of March. The successful applicants usually receive a grant to a maximum of £500. The Trust will soon be wound up, so 2017 successful applicants will be the last to be awarded grants.
The grants are paid only once a year, in July, after references have been taken up and other paperwork completed.
THESE TESTIMONIALS ARE JUST A FEW OF THE MANY RECEIVED FROM SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS.
'I thank you most sincerely for the help in funding my course which I probably would have been unable to complete without your help.'
'Your good wishes, confidence in my ability and support and friendship extended to me all the way along, are priceless gifts which I will treasure for ever.'
'I enclose receipts to show how the money has been spent. You will see it has gone, mainly on books and IT items. Please express my sincerest gratitude to the Trust for their financial assistance.'
