The Girls’ Welfare Fund supports girls and young women aged from 15 to 25 who are in need and were born, educated and live in the Merseyside area. Our grants can be one off or recurrent according to need. Grants made can range from £50 to £750. Applications can be made by letter to the correspondent or via email. If you are sending us an email include full details of what is needed and for what purpose. Applications can be submitted directly by the individual or through a social worker, Citizens Advice or another welfare agency. Applications are considered quarterly in March, June, September and December. The trust also gives grants to organisations benefiting girls and young women on Merseyside and to eligible individuals for leisure, creative, sports, arts and educational activities.
