We fund Major Awards of up to £5000, given to young people aged 18-30 years, singly or in groups.
We also collaborate with various schools where a School Award for 16-18 years to a value up to £500 is made annually in each school.
These awards are given for projects involving personal goals and challenge. We believe that motivation, effort, and ownership of activities are important in shaping the person and giving confidence.
To obtain funding you need to show initiative and evidence of a can-do attitude and a willingness to develop. You will show that you are caring and that you understand the importance of mutual support, collaboration and team work, so that your activities may inspire others. The project should be something you are very interested in but is harder than you have done before, and so is a challenge for you.
A wide range of personal challenges will be considered.
To help through the process of application and carrying out awards, mentors are available if requested (see awards section).
