The Foundation’s objectives are underpinned by the desire to give those under the age of 18, and living with a mental health condition, disability, or growing up in poverty, the opportunity to fulfil their potential whilst improving wellbeing, self-esteem and independence.
The Foundation can fund clearly defined projects, initiatives or the purchase of specific items that support one or more of the following:
Enables individuals to experience the mental and physical health benefits of participatory sport
Ensures participatory sport is accessible
Provides sporting or educational activities that foster life skills
Aims to improve academic engagement and attainment
Encourages the development of skills and personal attributes to aid future employability
It is the intention of the Trustees to consider a targeted approach to funding and seek out opportunities which provide scope to ‘materially change the life of an individual’.
It is the intention of the Trustees to distribute the annual income available to The Foundation, likely to be in the region of £2,000,000 per annum.
Grants will only be allocated to fund defined projects, initiatives or the purchase of specific items and wherever possible payments will be made directly to suppliers. We have no minumum or maximum grant size.
