The Foundation makes grants to charities that meet one of their two chosen areas of focus which are:
1. Improving the education of young people
The Foundation is investing in the future by supporting young people in the vital areas of education, awareness and training. Through targeted grant giving the Foundation aims to facilitate a better future for young people by supporting local charities. Education funding generally will be given for training/re-training, educational equipment, activity-based learning leading to accreditation and sports equipment.
2. Improving the health of young people
The Foundation is committed to relieving suffering and supporting young people whilst they are undergoing treatment and care. Health funding generally will be given for medical equipment, care facilities, activity based holidays, proactive health awareness campaigns and hospices.
Central grants are made by the Foundation from their general funds, which are collected through voluntary events, campaigns and donations. Applications from registered charities in England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland may be submitted directly to the Foundation on a quarterly basis.
With its limited Central Funds, the Foundation has a particular focus on supporting these target groups:
• Children and young people with disabilities
• Children and young people who are sick in hospital
• Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)
Trustees tend to offer funding of between £5,000 - £10,000 per year for up to two years.
