The Daniel’s and Houghton’s Charity is an amalgamation of two charities created in 1649 and 1734 and provides relief to Lancashire residents in conditions of need, hardship or distress.

The charity offers items, services or facilities grants to those in need in Preston, Grimsargh, Broughton, Woodplumpton, Eaves, Catforth, Bartle, Alston and Elston.

Daniel’s and Houghton’s also assists charities that assess and target people in need and provide smaller grants to individuals or organisations.

The maximum request considered is £5,000, unless from an organisation or fellow charitable trust with a particular need.

They do not consider applications in person or from individuals directly, and all must be made via the charity website.
