Hello! Welcome to the online home of Shropshire Welfare Trust.

We are a group of three charities supporting  individuals and organisations in Shropshire.  

The Thompson Pritchard Trust awards grants to organisations and individuals to assist those who have a serious health problem or disability.  To qualify, a grant must be used for the benefit of persons living in Shropshire with a low income and little  capital.  Most of the awards are small grants made to individuals and a decision can be made reasonably quickly (within weeks).  The trustees meet twice yearly in March and October when decisions about larger grants are made. Examples of grants made include travel to and from hospital, convalescence, respite care, medical appliances, mobility aids and essential household appliances.  Grants cannot be made for debts, bills or expenses already incurred.  Applicants should include information about their health problems and financial situation together with the support of a 'sponsor' such as a health care worker, social worker, housing support officer or person of a similar standing who knows the applicant. An application form can be downloaded from the Contact Page of the website.

The Shropshire Welfare Trust has similar objectives to the Thompson Pritchard Trust but in addition can award a grant for any charitable object for the benefit of the inhabitants of Shropshire.

The Dr Gardner's Charity for Nurses awards grants to provide facilities for convalescence, rest and recreation and for the continuing education of nursing staff in Shropshire.

Please note that repeat grants to individuals are not normally awarded
