The Foundation’s specific focus is on inspiring disadvantaged young people aged under 25 years to live full and valuable lives and break the cycle of chaos that many experience by funding life-enhancing opportunities. The Foundation will give greater consideration towards applications that support disadvantaged young people in their teenage years.
The Foundation is seeking to support a limited number of community and educational projects that inspire young people to develop the social and practical that will enable them to achieve their full potential. The Foundation lists mentoring, educational and community activities as areas it is particularly interested in supporting. Opportunities or activities can be educational or vocational, may include core costs, and should provide experiences with a lasting impact that would otherwise be inaccessible to the young people concerned.
The Foundation is looking to fund one or two projects each year. A grant of up to £10,000 is available. Registered charities in England and Wales with an annual turnover of less than £1 million may apply. Applicants with an annual turnover of under £500,000 are likely to be prioritised. While there are no details about any matched funding requirement, it may be a consideration when applications are assessed.
Further information and an initial enquiry form is available on the Foundation’s website. The Foundation will send a full application form to applicants it may be interested in funding.
