The Trustees of the True Colours Trust are “committed to supporting a large number of excellent local organisations and projects that work with disabled children and their families on a daily basis. This is done through the Trust’s small grants programme. It provides grants of up to £10,000 to help smaller organisations develop and deliver programmes for children, their siblings and families. It is open to applications at any time. Grants in this category are usually one-off contributions rather than multi-year grants for on-going revenue costs.”
The Trust only accepts applications from registered charities or those with charitable status.
What can be funded?
The Trustees are particularly keen to support:
- Hydrotherapy pools
- Multi-sensory rooms
- Mini buses
- Young carers projects
- Sibling projects
- Bereavement support
- Specialised play equipment
“The programme is to provide support for children and young adults, from the age range 0-26 years. The projects detailed as areas the Trustees are keen to support is an indication only, projects outside of this list which provide support for children and young people with disabilities, and those with complex health care needs will also be considered. Organisations wishing to apply must adhere to the Trust’s safeguarding policy.”
There are no deadlines. The funder meets every three months to review applications.
The funder requests that you read answers to frequently asked questions before contacting the Trust.
