Grants for charities that support disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people (up the age of 25 years) to overcome the barriers they face in order to achieve the best possible start in life.
There are two funding levels:
- Large grants of between £10,000 and £150,000 for up to three years are available to charities with an income exceeding £500,000. The average large grant will range from £20,000 to £80,000. Occasionally, large grants of up to £150,000 are made for outstanding projects.
- Small grants of between £500 and £15,000 are available to charities with an income of under £500,000.
All grants can be over one, two, or three years. Grant amounts should not exceed 15% of the total income of the applicant charity. Charities can only apply for one grant programme at a time.
