The Leslie Sell Charitable Trust was set up in May 1969 by the late Leslie Sell to provide financial assistance to the Scouting and Guiding movement.
This independent Trust Fund makes small grants to Groups to help with the cost of making repairs, or purchasing sundry items of equipment. It also gives assistance to groups and individuals when they make trips in the UK or overseas.
Unfortunately the Trustees are unable to consider applications for trips submitted within three months of your proposed departure or event date
Normally grant applications are received from groups belonging to the Scout or Guide movement by way of letter on official notepaper, together with our Group Application Form.
They like to receive details of the project which requires funding, for example small–scale building works, repairs, or alterations, replacement of camping or other equipment, replacement of minibuses, together with details of the costs involved, and sight of any quotation you may have.
For group trips, they need details of the destination, the number and names of the young people and leaders taking part, any planned activities, together with the costs involved and dates of travel.
