Can we help your child?

In the words of one our parents-“I am glad I phoned at last, because even though it took me ages to work up the courage to dial, whatever the result, it started with the first step.”

Our grants fall into the following three categories:

  • Education
    Meeting the educational needs of vulnerable children, giving them the best possible opportunity to thrive.
  • Wellbeing
    Providing practical support to children and young people experiencing a wide range of issues such as special needs, disability, illness, behavioural and psychological problems.
  • Small Grant Applications
    You can apply for a small grant without submitting a full financial statement up to the amount of £250. Small Grants are designed to be easily accessible and are for one-off items such as bedding, clothing, learning tools, etc.
