We are very pleased to tell you that Colchester Catalyst Charity will now consider funding applications from anywhere within the CO postcode to include CO8 and CO10 which were previously outside our area of benefit. 

Colchester Catalyst Charity has been a grant making charity since 1990, following the sale of the former Colchester Oaks Hospital.

At that time, the Charity resolved to devote its income from the invested funds of that sale to supporting the many caring organisations working for the relief of the sick or suffering in North East Essex.

Specifically, Colchester Catalyst Charity seeks to help caring groups that provide services to people with medical conditions or disabilities living in North East Essex, we now offer our services from any CO post code.

While it is our intention to provide support where it will benefit the greatest number of people, selective help is given to individuals where needed. This help is usually in the form of specialised equipment or respite care.
