Who can apply for a grant?

The charity supports the following beneficiary groups:

  • Serving and retired Anglican clergy and their dependants.
  • Divorced and separated spouses and civil partners of eligible clergy.
  • Widows, widowers and surviving civil partners of eligible clergy.
  • Anglican ordinands training for ministry in the UK or Ireland. 

The relevant clergy must be working in or have worked in:

  • The United Kingdom.
  • The Republic of Ireland.
  • The Diocese of Sodor and Man.
  • The Channel Islands.

We can consider help for Anglican clergy in the Diocese in Europe or who currently work abroad (supported by a UK-based missionary society). However, our help in these cases will be limited to unforeseen crises and not where any structural shortfall in finance could have been anticipated prior to the posting.
