Who the Trust Supports

The Enfield Church Trust for Girls provides support to benefit young women living, working and being educated within the Old Enfield Borough boundaries. (For the purposes of this Trust, ‘a young woman’ is normally defined as someone between the ages of 15-24).

The ancient Parish Boundary includes: Botany Bay, Brimsdown, Bulls Cross, Bush Hill Park, Clay Hill, Cockfosters, Enfield Chase, Enfield Highway, Enfield Lock, Enfield Town, Enfield Wash, Forty Hill, Freezywater, Gordon Hill, Green Street, Oakwood, Ponders End, and Turkey Street.

The boundary is marked on this map in red:

The Charity accepts grant applications solely for the purpose of supporting education for young women. There is no maximum amount that can be applied for. However, please bear in mind that the Trust has a limited amount of money for each financial year. Once that amount of money has been allocated, we are unable to give any further grants in that financial year. It may be that your grant will be rejected, even if it is a worthy application, because we have used our yearly funds. It may also be that we can pay only a partial amount that is being applied for, rather than the full amount.

Grants are made to promote the education, including social and physical training, and the advancement in life of young women attending schools or other places of education, or working in the area of benefit. The applicant does not need to be studying in the place of benefit (e.g. at a college or university here) but, in that instance, the applicant does need to be living in Enfield as their main residence or have their family home here.

In the allocation of grants, the trustees have regard to the principles and doctrines of the Church of England.

At the current time, no grant applications are being taken.

The Trust is undergoing a restructuring. We hope to conclude this by Autmn 2023, after which we will be able to receive applications.
