Girton Town Charity (GTC) exists to enable Girton residents to lead as full a life as possible in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

One of the main ways we can offer help is in the form of Personal Grants so that you can pay for things to enable you to do this – whether it's providing a disabled shower, helping fund some training for a career change in later life or buying equipment for a member of your family with special needs.

In addition to helping residents in specific circumstances – each one assessed on need and eligibility – we also offer a range of Schemes and Grants.

If you feel that you could benefit from GTC's help, why not contact our office and find out more?
