Aims/priorities: The first round of 2022 provides grants to young carers/young adult carers. In recognition of the huge impact the pandemic has had on children and young people across the UK, especially that those with caring responsibilities are disproportionately affected, the Trust has focused its funding on providing support to young carers and young adult carers to address learning gaps linked to the pandemic.
The funding is not for standalone new projects, rather it is to support work that ‘amplifies the impact’ of existing work with young carers (up to the age of 25) and develops existing support around learning and access to education and training.
The second round will support young people with criminal convictions.
The funding is for projects that work with young people with criminal convictions (up to the age of 25) to find meaningful and secure employment.
Who can apply? Registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies that are working within the UK and have a UK office are eligible to apply. Applying organisations must have an income of less than £1 million over the past three years.
The Trust particularly welcomes applications from organisations working in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Grant amount: Grants are available from £10,000 up to £60,000 for a duration of six months to two years. A maximum of £30,000 per year can be requested.
Application process: There is a two-stage application process.
