2021 Grants

Applying for a 2021 Day for Life grant from the Catholic Trust for England and Wales for 2021

This document sets out eligibility for grants, how to submit an application form and guidance on what to include in your application. Day for Life grants are awarded in February of each year.


The theme for Day for Life 2020 is Choose Life, with a particular focus on protecting mothers and unborn children, and bringing hope and healing after abortion.

Money collected in 2020 will be distributed in February 2021. The Day for Life collection is used for the promotion of the dignity of the human person.

In addition to organisations working to promote the dignity of life at all stages, for 2021 we are particularly welcoming grant applications from organisations working to protect mothers and unborn children.


The applicant organisation must be based within England or Wales. If you are a Catholic organisation, your application must be read and signed by your local bishop. If you are not a Catholic organisation, your application must be read and signed by a representative from a local organisation (for example, a representative from the local Council).

Application Form

The Grant Proposal must answer all sections of the application form. Please be concise but cover the criteria requested, and please submit the form in Microsoft Word – a .doc or .docx file please.
