Agnes Hunter Trust
Grants are available for registered charities in Scotland that support people suffering from arthritis and cancer, help disabled people, including those affected by physical disability, visual impairment or illness, and those with mental health problems or learning disabilities, and assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people.
The Miss Agnes H Hunter's Trust was established in 1954 under testamentary deed and is managed by a Board of Trustees. The funds available for charitable use come from both investments and income from property in Leith built by Mr Samuel Hunter, Miss Hunter's father.
