Our primary focus for 2021 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 offenders.
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.
This is an opportunity for us to find out more about the work you do and the project you would like us to support.
