Welcome to the Triangle Trust 1949 Fund

Our current primary focus is to help support the needs of young carers and young people caught up in the criminal justice system.

Applying for Funding

  • We run two grant rounds each year – one for work supporting young carers/young adult carers and one for work supporting young people with criminal convictions.
  • The application process has two stages as this gives us the best chance of understanding your proposal and how it links to our aims.
  • Following the submission of your initial online application, shortlisted applicants will be asked to host an assessment visit with our Director.
  • This is an opportunity for us to find out more about the work you do and the project you would like us to support.
