Trusthouse is interested in applications for capital projects at community centres in the most deprived urban areas and village halls in remote and economically deprived rural areas. 

The foundation want to support community centres and village halls which are at the heart of small, deprived communities.

‘Community Centres’ can be interpreted in a broad sense, so you might be a church, sports facility or other building which offer a range of activities throughout the week  which all the community can access.

Applications will be considered for:

  • new buildings
  • renovating
  • extending buildings
  • improving or creating outside space (but not car parks)

Their interests include:

  • innovative schemes for bringing back disused buildings into full community use such as:
    • community shops combined with space for community activities,
    • community hubs which bring different groups together to share space and offer easy access to a range of services
  • traditional village halls which provide the standard activities which keep a community together


  • the postcode of your building must clearly show that, in urban areas, you are in the most deprived 20% of the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation or, in rural areas, you are in the most deprived 50% of the indices
