Aims/priorities: The foundation makes grants to projects which support young people (16 years and under) who are challenged by abuse or addiction, who are young carers, or who are homeless/without a safe place to call home.

Project grants to cover the costs of projects which:

  • Enable young people to have the best start in life and aim high.
  • Have a direct impact and respond to a need in an immediate manner.
  • Are hosted in geographical areas of deprivation and socioeconomic disadvantage.
  • Respond to one or more of the funding priorities of the7stars foundation.
  • Address a lack of provision (due to a lack of funding from alternative sources).
  • Provide immediate support, not just in the short-term but with long-term benefits too.
  • Shine Bright funding for regional charities during the Covid-19 pandemic. Funding enables charities to purchase wellbeing, emotional and mental health support items or educational, creative resources for the young people they support to promote happiness in a time of worry and anxiety. (Beneficiaries are selected and items are purchased/distributed by the charity partner.)
  • Direct grants funding to individuals affected by the themes we priorities, supported by outreach/social/care workers or legal professionals. (Applications must be submitted by the supporting professional/organisation.)
  • Star Start funding to tackle child food poverty escalated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Support for breakfast clubs for young people aged 16 years and under, living in urban cities within the UK. (Note: In 2021 this funding was directed solely towards London.)
