NFU Mutual Charitable Trust (UK)

The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust, which was set up in 1998, to promote and support charities in the UK working in agriculture, rural development and insurance has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 28 October 2016.

Following a recent strategic review, the Trustees have indicated that in future, the Trust will focus on providing funding to larger initiatives, which would have a significant impact on the rural community. The Trustees are particularly interested in initiatives in the areas of education of young people in rural areas and relief of poverty within rural areas.

Projects supported in the past include:

Farms for City Children which aims to expand the horizons of children from towns and cities by offering them a week in the countryside living together in one of their farms. And the Royal Highland Education Trust which aims to create an opportunity for each child in Scotland to experience the countryside and to facilitate a wider understanding of the environmental, economic and social realities of rural Scotland. Its key activities include farm visits, classroom speaker visits and a number of high profile national competition.
