The Adamson Trust is a long established Perthshire charity based in Crieff, Scotland.
We are able to give financial help with the cost of holidays or respite breaks for
young people aged 17 and under with a physical, mental or emotional disability.
We can only give help for this purpose.
The Adamson Trust
Under the rules of the Trust, the Trustees need to be certain that the request is
only for children aged 17 and under with disabilities. Thus the application form
asks for some detailed information about the child, and also about the planned holiday.
It is essential that this is provided.
Please apply as soon as the holiday is planned. The Trustees, all from the Crieff
area, meet four times a year to decide on grants – in February, May, August and November.
Applications for the February meeting must be in by November 30 the previous year,
for the May meeting by March 31, for the August meeting by June 30, and for the November
meeting by September 30.
So often we say that something is too good to be true, or “where’s the catch?” Just
occasionally there is no catch. Would you believe there is a children’s charity based
in Crieff, Perthshire, which gives grants for children with disabilities to go on
holiday or receive respite care.
We welcome applications from throughout the United Kingdom.
