Jill Franklin Trust grants are typically £500 to £1000, and the trust has four areas in which it is soliciting grant applications: 1. Self-Help groups (advice, training, and employment; to support learning disabled people or those with a mental illness, and their carers (parents etc.); 2. Respite care, and holidays (in the UK only). Grants for holidays are only given where there is a large element of respite care and only to registered charities, not to individuals. 3. Organisations helping and supporting refugees and asylum seekers coming to or are in the UK. 4. The restoration (not ‘improvement’) of churches of architectural importance and occasionally to other buildings of architectural importance.
