South Lanarkshire Charitable Trust (SC049819)
The South Lanarkshire Charitable Trust was established by South Lanarkshire Council in December 2019 for the purposes of reorganising existing trust funds and to make it easier to use the funds to provide benefit to local communities.

(c) Advancement of education
(d) Advancement of health
(e) Advancement of citizenship or community development
(f) Advancement of art, heritage, culture, or science
(g) The provision of recreational facilities or the organisation of recreational activities with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities or activities are primarily intended
(h) To assist other charitable organisations with purposes similar to the Trust so as to further their charitable purposes within the South Lanarkshire Council area by the provision of financial and/or material assistance
(i) Any other purpose designated as charitable under the Charity and Trustee Investment Scotland Act 2005
