About

The Holywood Trust is a charitable organisation which aims to help young people in Dumfries and Galloway. It gives grants to individuals and organisations, creating opportunities for young people in the region.

We want to help young people throughout Dumfries and Galloway fulfil their potential in cultural, educational and social aspects of their lives. We do this by providing financial grants to individual young people, and organisations which support or provide opportunities for young people in the region.

The Trust is particularly interested in:

  • Providing opportunities for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in our region
  • Encouraging talented young people in Dumfries and Galloway
  • Helping improve sports and cultural opportunities across the region

We focus primarily on young people aged 15 – 25 years. However we will occassionally consider supporting vulnerable younger children for preventative measures in relation to health or social disadvantage, or if the activities are particularly inspirational!

The Trust is administered by a Board of Trustees, and a professional staff based in Dumfries.
