The object of the Dean of Manchester Crosland Fund is to assist people living in Greater Manchester who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress by making grants of money or providing or paying for items, services or facilities calculated to reduce the need, hardship or distress of such persons. Unfortunately, grants cannot be made towards meeting the costs of rates, taxes or other public funds. Grants cannot be repeated or renewed on any occasion in any case.
