Roof Protection Scheme

4 November 2016

For a limited period, Allchurches Trust is making available grants to churches of any denomination that would like to guard against metal theft by installing a roof alarm system.

The scheme is simple: a grant of £1,000 towards the cost of an alarm/protection system approved by your insurer (whoever that may be), and in turn a commitment by your Church Council (or equivalent) to maintain the system for five years. Funds are limited and the closing date for applications is 31st March 2017 so we would encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Please note that you must apply for a grant before any work to install a roof alarm/protection system is completed, as we do not normally award retrospective grants for completed work. We would also normally expect works funded with the help of a grant under this scheme to be completed by 31st December 2017, though in exceptional circumstances we may agree to an extension to this.
