CLUTTON UNITED CHARITIES
Providing financial assistance to
individuals and families in need
The charity is the result of the amalgamation of several individual charitable legacies. The first of these legacies was made in October 1620.
Clause 4 of the 1899 Scheme that governs the charity provides that ‘the body of Trustees shall consist of five competent persons, being
- One Ex-officio Trustee,
- Two Representative Trustees, and
- Two Co-optative Trustees.’
The Trustees meet as and when needed to make decisions about the use of the small amounts of money they are able to distribute. They consider any application they have received, and if necessary ask for further details to help them decide what to do about it. They first must decide whether the circumstances of the applicant meet the conditions of the Charity Commission Scheme.
Clutton United Charities has a capital of about £20,000. The Trustees can only distribute the income from this capital, leaving the capital intact. A quarter of the income may be used to further the education of residents of Clutton under 25 years of age who are in need of financial assistance; the other three quarters may be spent on the ‘relief of poverty’ among Clutton residents.
The Trustees meet as and when needed to make decisions about the use of the limited funds available to them for distribution. They consider any application – and if necessary they may ask for further details to help them decide whether the circumstances they are being asked to help with meet the conditions of the Charity Commission Scheme.
