What Do We Do?

Happy childhoodThe charity’s ongoing focus is:

  • To relieve the needs of children (under 18 year olds) by reason of finance, illness, or other disadvantage, by the provision of grants to improve their conditions of life.
  • The Charity is particularly interested in applications for grants that will provide children with enjoyment, not just the basic essentials of daily life, though these may also be funded where deemed appropriate.

Who Can Apply?

Please read our Grant Making Policy before applying! Some key points:

As of October 2023, we are not making individual grants. 

  • We do NOT fund activities outside of England and Wales
  • We do NOT fund furniture, white goods, fixtures and fittings, renovations, school/university fees, computers or laptops, debts and debt management, or basic necessities of daily life such as rent, food, and clothing.
  • We ONLY fund grants for children.
  • We do not provide funds to individuals directly so applications must be made by, or with the support of, a professional familiar with the proposed beneficiary and who is willing to complete a signed declaration confirming the accuracy of the application.
  • All applications must be submitted with supporting evidence.
