Formerly known as the Hilton in the Community Foundation, the foundation provides funding for organisations which work to improve the lives of children and young people across Europe.
Grants focus on providing equipment, training and support to young people, and are administered through several different models.
Applications working in the areas of education or health with one of our four chosen focus groups are selected or considered:
- Children and young people with disabilities
- Children and young people who are sick in hospital
- Employability and training programmes for disadvantaged young people
- Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)
If favoured, grant applications for up to £5,000 can be approved by the Director, up to £10,000 can be approved by the Grants Committee, and applications for more than £10,000 are recommended to the Trustees for final approval. The Foundation is a small charity and generally will not make awards of over £30,000 (per year). Funding can be requested for up to 2 years for any particular project.
