FAQs about the National Trust
Here are the answers to some of the questions we’re often asked, covering who we are, what we do and how you can get involved.
Are you government funded?
We are a charity, independent of government. As such, we do not receive any guaranteed annual grant-in-aid and we cannot rely on government support. We do however make applications every year to a range of competitive grant schemes, primarily to support our project work (through central and local government, European government, and through sources such as Lottery funds).
