DM Thomas Foundation – Central Grants for Young People18-Sep-2017
The DM Thomas Foundation is currently receiving applications for its Central Grants programme, helping to deliver projects that improve access to opportunities
and improve well-being.
The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People work to help disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and children.
The main activity of the organisation is to make a difference through specifically designated grant support; this helps local and regional community groups and charities across Europe to provide projects that improve access to opportunities and improve well-being.
Across their grant making processes, the Foundation are especially interested in funding projects which:
- Provide and facilitate access to education;
- Provide tools and opportunities through equipment, facilities and training; and
- Relieve suffering; improve treatment, care and wellbeing.
The Foundation are especially interested to hear from applications working in the areas of education or health in one of the four following:
- Children and young people with disabilities
- Children and young people who are sick in hospital
- Children and young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
- Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)
Grant applications for up to £10,000 can be approved by the Committee, and applications for more than £10,000 are recommended to the Trustees for final approval.
The Foundation is a small charity; so although they would not normally make awards of over £30,000 per year, the Foundation say funding can be requested for up to 2 years for a particular project.
For this season the deadline for applications is the 10th October 2016.
