Grants of up to £2,500 up for grabs

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

Grants of up to £2,500 are up for grabs for charities which support young people aged 16 and under who are young carers or are challenged by abuse and addiction, homelessness, and lack of access to safe spaces. 

The funding, from 7Stars Foundation, will support projects in geographic areas of deprivation and socioeconomic disadvantage and help young people to achieve the best start in life.

UK-based organisations with an annual turnover of less than £1.5 million can apply for funding for projects that:

•    Enable young people to have the best start in life and aim high.
•    Have a direct impact and respond to a need in an immediate manner.
•    Are hosted in geographical areas of deprivation and socioeconomic disadvantage.
•    Respond to one or more of the funding priorities of the 7stars Foundation (abuse, addiction, homelessness, and child carers).
•    Address a lack of provision (due to a lack of funding from alternative sources).
•    Provide immediate support, not just in the short-term but with long-term benefits too.

For projects addressing Child Carers, preference will be given to applications that offer long-term impact or sustainable support, such as mentoring or outreach programmes, over recreational trips.

There are four application rounds in 2022.

The next deadline for applications is 31 October 2022. Find out more here
