The Richards Trust is a fund administered by SPCK, with the purpose of assisting ordinands in financial need. It does not provide scholarships, or fund books or placements. Rather, is a contingency fund to help ordinands who fall into financial difficulty during the course of their training. The trust deed stipulates that candidates must be under the age of 40 and preparing for ordination in the Church of England.
The application procedure is very simple, and the Trustees consider each application as it arrives so that a response can be made swiftly and a grant, if awarded, paid without delay.
