The Trust supports a wide range of applications from urgent personal needs to costs of participation in national events. The Trustees are particularly interested in applications which can contribute in some tangible way to your ongoing personal development.
How much money can I apply for?
Our grants to individual young people are normally in the range of £50 to £500 - the amount awarded will depend on your need and your personal (or family) circumstances. If the amount you need is more than we can provide, a grant may be made subject to you securing other funding.
How long will it take for my application to be considered?
We will try and give you a decision on your application within 4 – 6 weeks of receiving it. However in some situations this make take longer, particularly if we receive incomplete applications and require further information from you.
Why did someone else get more money than me?
The Trust will take into account the circumstances of each applicant based on the information provided on the application form.
Can I make more than one application?
