Henry Duncan Awards

In 2010 our main grant programme was renamed the 'Henry Duncan Awards' in honour of The Reverend Henry Duncan who founded the first Trustee Savings Bank just over 200 years ago.

Every year, we award nearly 1 million in grants to grassroots charities working with individuals and communities experiencing or at risk of, disadvantage. This is how our support helps.
