The GWT Support Grant is now available for gamekeepers, or their family members, who have been diagnosed with a condition

The Gamekeepers' Welfare Trust knows how hard receiving a medical diagnosis can be. There’s the emotional and physical impact of finding out you or a loved one has heart disease, stroke or cancer.  

On top of that, there are the ripple effects through your lives that have practical and financial implications: ongoing hospital visits, time off work, dietary needs, childcare, and more.  

The GWT Support Grant is now available and has two main criteria to be eligible: 

  1. You, or a member of your family, has been diagnosed with a condition 
  2. You are, or were, a gamekeeper, stalker, ghillie or in an associated occupation 

Contact us for further information today. We are the gamekeeping family – here to support you and your family, whatever happens.

Financial support is available from the GWT for a wide range of circumstances. GWT was established in 1992 to support people in the gamekeeping professions and their dependants past and present. Assistance can be emotional support, counselling, employment guidance, housing help, and more. An overview of GWT’s work in support, finance, housing and employment with these professions, can be found at
