One of the key objectives of the Eleanor Palmer Trust is to assist “the relief of persons in the area of benefit who are in need, hardship or distress.’
The Trust provides grants to individuals, as well as for ‘not for profit’ organisations. It is a requirement that the beneficiaries of a grant live within the specified areas of benefit (principally the old (pre-1965) Urban Districts of Chipping Barnet and East Barnet – most of EN5 and EN4 and a small section of N11 and N14 postal codes).
In exceptional cases the Trustees may vote to assist someone who resides outside the area of benefit, or is a temporary resident in the area of benefit. The Trustee’s decision is final.
Each application is considered on its own merits by the Trustees.
We do not support requests for grants for educational purposes. There are other charities for this need, such as The Elizabeth Allen Trust http://www.elizabethallentrust.org.uk .
