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 (but not 2nd or Post Graduate Degrees)
- participation in sporting and cultural activities at regional, national or international level
- purchase musical instruments, or sporting equipment
We do not make retrospective (backdated) awards and at least 4 weeks should be allowed for your application to be processed.
When returning our application form please ensure you have sufficient stamps to post a large letter.
If we are unable to give you a grant, we will try to help you identify other possible funders.
