As a registered charity, Chatsworth House Trust (CHT) has a commitment to its charitable objectives which includes offering a wide variety of learning opportunities for both children and adults. To facilitate this, CHT has an access and participation fund that can be made available to groups who can demonstrate they fulfil certain criteria. Each eligible application will receive a contribution of up to £500 towards travel costs. There is no limit on how many times you can apply within a year, however, a repeat grant is at CHT’s discretion. It is essential that criteria can be evidenced in order that we allocate the funds in a transparent, equitable and auditable manner. 

To apply for a travel subsidy, please complete the application form below and a member of our team will be in touch within five business days.

This fund does not support visits from universities.
