The Pastoral Care Trust/St Nicholas Care Fund

The Pastoral Care Trust/St Nicholas Care Fund 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.

The Trust aims to help in Christ's name those in need in the community.  Assisting social need is central to the fund and any group applying for a grant should show clear evidence of their need.

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.
  • 470,000 working-age adults live in poverty.

When you give to the St Nicholas Care Fund, you give collectively to so many different kinds of good causes, many more than 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 challenge and support the Fund.
