You can apply to The Holywood Trust for a grant if you are a young person, normally resident in Dumfries and Galloway and require financial support to move your life forward in some way.
Our focus is primarily on young people aged 15 - 25 years, however we will consider grants for younger vulnerable children if they are preventative measures in relation to health or social disadvantage, or if a child has an exceptional talent and requires funding to further this.
Examples of the support provided from Holywood Trust:
- purchase household items for a young person leaving care
- contribution towards College and University expenses
- participation in sporting and cultural activities at regional, national or international level
- purchase musical instruments, or sporting equipment
If we are unable to give you a grant, we will try and help you to identify other possible sources of funding.
