Welcome to The Pastoral Care Trust-St Nicholas Care Fund's MiniSite

The Pastoral Care Trust – The St Nicholas Care Fund

 

  

IN  SERVICE  OF  CHRIST’S  MISSON

  

The Trust was set up in 1992 to mark the 500th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

  

It was founded to establish in a modern context the traditions of five centuries of Christian life and action here in Glasgow.

  

In particular it was established to offer small grants to groups, agencies and projects working for the common good of all people in need.

  

The Trust encourages applications from community groups, voluntary organizations, charities and other bodies whose aim is to tackle an identified social need within the areas covered by the City of Glasgow and the District of East and West Dunbartonshire; North and South Lanarkshire; Renfrewshire; East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde and the Western part of Argyll and Bute District around Helensburgh and the Gareloch.

 GRANT  SCHEME

  

The Fund is a Church agency, although the help which is provided is not restricted to activities or interests carried out within the Church.

Some Facts

 

  • Despite Scotland's undoubted wealth a staggering one in four of our children still lives in poverty.

 

  • 52% of children living in poverty are in households with a working adult.

 

  • 38% of households in poverty have someone in work.

When you give to the St Nicholas Care Fund, you give collectively to so many differnt kinds of good causes.  Many more that you would be able to help individually.  Everything the Fund gives is in your name - your support:

 

  • Changes the lives of children living in poverty.
  • Helps support parents bring up their families.
  • Helps families to stay together by supporting grandparents as Kinship Carers.

 

We believe that we all have a part to play in the well-being of our local communities.  Supporting the Fund provides us with an opportunity of assisting those working for good in our communities.  Please consider how you can meet this chanllenge and support the Fund.
