The Rayne Foundation consider applications in the fields of arts, health and wellbeing, education in its widest sense and those that cover social issues. Their focus is to connect communities, building bridges between marginalised groups and mainstream society and to enable individuals to reach their full potential. Within these broad criteria, they have a number of areas of special interest:
- Young people’s improved mental health
- Arts as a tool to achieve social change
- Improved quality of life for carers and for older people
The Rayne Foundation particularly welcomes applications addressing these issues but will consider applications in other subjects which meet their broader criteria.
Grants typically fall in the range of £10,000-£20,000 per annum for up to three years. They prefer to fund alongside others as they are unlikely to be able to fund your project in full.
