Established in 1909, the Sir James & Lady Scott Trust is able to award grants to charities based in Bolton.  Trustees give priority to projects which support disadvantaged individuals and communities.

The Trust makes up to 20 charitable donations a year with grant awards ranging from £250 to £3,000.  The Borough of Bolton is its beneficial area in recognition of the Scott family’s previous residence in Bolton and their strong interest in the town’s charitable work.


SirJ&LST Trustees are delighted to announce that Helen Carter has been appointed as the new Secretary to take over from Chris Batten who is retiring at the end of March 2018. Helen is joining SirJ&LST from Brathay and we all look forward to her contributing significantly to the philanthropic work of the Scott Trusts in the years ahead.
