The Leche Trust


The Leche Trust is a registered, grant-making charity (225659) founded and endowed by the late Mr. Angus Acworth CBE. 

The Trustees' main grants programme supports projects in two areas: performing arts and conservation. 

Performing Arts

Our priorities for music, theatre and dance are:

  • Excellence in professional performance;
  • The production and performance of new work;
  • The development of young, professional artists aged 18 or over.

We aim to achieve a broad balance between music, theatre and dance projects, and take into account the number and location of the audiences and/or individuals likely to benefit.

The Trust will consider offering grants up to £5,000 but, because of demand, £5,000 grants are exceptional. In 2019 they received 302 applications and awarded 84 grants totalling £175,300. The average grant was £2,000.
