Lady Gould’s Charity

The Charity currently gives grants to individuals who live in the Highgate area of North London and are in need of financial assistance, for example through mental or physical difficulties, family or household circumstances.

Grants are usually between £200 to £400. Typically grants cover household items such as baby necessities, furniture, carpets, washing machines, cookers or clothing. The trust makes about 85 grants per year.

We are not an educational charity and only in exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the trustees, are grants made for educational or recreational circumstances or for debt relief.

How to apply?

You can download an application form on Lady Gould's Charity website.

You can also ring the office on: 020 7783 3568 to request one.

  • A supporting statement from Social Services, a recognised professional (such as a GP, nurse, social worker), state or voluntary organisation
