How We Work

Our approach is straightforward. We simply provide grants to charities associated with enabling young people to help others in direct and practical ways.
We are spending out our remaining funds and therefore closed to new applications. We are now working with a small group of charities that work with disadvantaged young people in communities across the United Kingdom. Our aim is to support those young people who face some of the biggest barriers to long-term success – through underachievement at school, ill-health, long-term unemployment or who come from vulnerable or troubled backgrounds.
