Herbert Strutt Charity

Hsc _199x 35

The Herbert Strutt Charity Trust was established in 1986 and is administered jointly by Amber Valley Borough Council and Belper Town Council.

The fund is made up of the proceeds of sale of New Road Depot in Belper and also includes net sale proceeds from Gibfield Lane Baths, Belper and other minor sales.

The Charity awards Funds for charitable purposes to benefit residents of the area served by Belper Town Council (including Milford), in one or more of the following ways:

  • The relief of the aged and poor;
  • The relief of distress and sickness;
  • The provision and support, with the object of improving the condition of life for the residents of the area in the interests of social welfare of facilities for recreation and other leisure time occupation;
  • The provision and support of educational facilities.

The Charity is for the benefit of Belper residents, so meetings are normally held twice yearly at St John's Chapel, Belper, which is provided free of charge.

You can apply for a grant from the Charity either as part of an organisation or as an individual, as long as you are based in Belper and meet the criteria listed below. If your application does qualify for grant aid, it will be referred to a meeting of the Herbert Strutt Joint Management Committee and considered for funding alongside all other qualifying applications. Before applying, it may be helpful to consider the Charity's policies which can be viewed on this page.

Those applications that do not meet the Charity's criteria are advised accordingly and sent a directory of alternative potential funding agencies.
