About the Beamsley Trust

The Beamsley Trust was originally an independent charity and came under the auspices of the Craven Trust in 1999. While the Craven Trust primarily focuses on groups and organisations that benefit others, the Beamsley Trust enables trustees to give grants to individuals, enabling them to have a better quality of life through access to support, services, opportunities, and other activities.

The Beamsley Trust also gives grants to groups who are particularly working with vulnerable people – of any age or background – who are disadvantaged by disability, poverty or other circumstances.

The Trustees generally live and/or work in the area covered by the Beamsley Trust and have a good understanding of the needs and constraints of the very varied communities and environments – from rural hamlets and farming communities to the large, multiethnic post industrial town of Keighley, and the individual challenges that people face.
