The Adamson Trust


The Adamson Trust is a long established Perthshire charity based in Crieff. They provide financial help with the cost of holidays or respite breaks for disabled children aged between 3 and 17 with physical, mental or emotional impairments. Individual families can apply directly. In addition, they accept applications on behalf of groups of children, organisations and other registered charities.

Eligibility Criteria

Families with a disabled child or children aged between 3 and 17 with physical, mental or emotional impairments.


In mid – 2020 the Trustees reduced the number of meetings from four to three a year, reflecting the impact of the pandemic. However, many charities were able to resume running their clubs and outings in 2021 for the first time in 18 months – after what was a particularly difficult time for handicapped children and their carers – and the Trust has reverted to holding four meetings annually.

These are at the beginning of February, May, August and November.

Applications must be received by December 31 for the February meeting, By March 31 for the May meeting, by June 30 for the Auhust meeting, and by September 30 for the novemeber meeting.

How to Apply

Panel meets 3 times per year (April,July and November). More information on this fund can be found on the Adamson Trust website:
