Grant applications


Please note that all our funding streams are only for the benefit of UK residents in UK communities. We do not accept overseas applications.

Youth Projects

If you are interested in applying for our YAP or GAP schemes of work, please see the Youth Projects pages on our website. Brochures are available to download on that page with further information, and if you have any queries please contact Helen Stockdale in our Penrith office.

Community Care Projects

If you are interested in applying for one of our Time to Shine internships please contact Helen Stockdale in our Penrith office. Due to our current commitments tied to our proactive research driven work, we are not able to consider unsolicited applications for other community care projects.

Special Projects

We very much regret that we no longer accept any new applications for Special Projects, which remains part of our researched, proactive work. Please do not send any unsolicited applications.

Small Appeals

This is a small funding stream for registered charities and recognised churches which are raising money for projects which are costed at under £1million. If you are raising money for a particular project for which the mainstay is capital costs (building work, refurbishment or the purchase of long-term equipment) or a one-off short term activity (such as an annual respite break or holiday for disadvantaged young people) and have already raised a third of the total costs, you may be eligible for this. Please use the application form to confirm your eligibility and apply. Please note that we do not fund running costs or salaries through our small appeals programme.
