About our funding

We hold one grants round per year for organisations working with young carers and one round for organisations working with young offenders. This ensures applicants have a higher success rate and high quality applications are not rejected as we can compare similar applications in one go.  

The application process has two stages. 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.

To ensure that we support the projects that best fit our strategy, we visit more organisations than we can fund as we want to meet you in person rather than just reading about what you do in your application. Our Trustees then have the job of deciding which applications we will go on to support with funding. 


Application dates for 2022

Our 2022 funding opportunity for work with young carers is now closed. We will provide an update on our plans for 2023 towards the end of 2022.

For organisations working with young offenders you can make an application for funding between 19 September 2022 and 28 October 2022.

Only complete applications submitted using the online form by noon on the last day of the published funding window will be considered.
