The Edinburgh & Lothian Trust Fund (ELTF) became an independent charity in 2001 but it can trace its roots back almost 150 years during which time its core purpose has been the relief of poverty.

ELTF administers a number of Funds.

  • The General Fund is comprised of legacies from individuals who donated a sum of money for the benefit of voluntary agencies and individuals in need, where poverty and illness are main factors. The Trust funds are restricted to beneficiaries in the City of Edinburgh and the Lothians. Grants are available to:
    • individuals up to a maximum of £250 per family
    • small voluntary organisations up to a maximum of £2,000 a year.
  • The Edinburgh Fire Fund provides grants to individuals who have lost possessions or suffered trauma due to a fire in their home. Beneficiaries are those who are on low income, have no contents insurance and are resident in Edinburgh. The maximum award is £3,500, depending on house size.
  • The Trust also administers the Edinburgh Police Fund for Children which provides grants for jackets and shoes for school children. Beneficiaries are those who are on a low income and are resident in Edinburgh. The maximum grant is £50 per child.
