Funding to Help Disadvantaged Young People (UK)

Charities working with disadvantaged young people aged 13 or below can apply for funding of up to £5,000 from the Toy Trust.

Founded by the British Toy and Hobby Association, the Toy Trust- the industry’s charity- exists to raise money predominantly from the toy industry, its suppliers and friends; and distribute the money raised to charities helping disadvantaged and disabled children within the UK and abroad.

Funding is available towards projects that:

  • Help disadvantaged children and their families to alleviate suffering
  • Support children through awful experiences
  • Encourage achievement through adversity
  • Purchase vital equipment; provide care
  • Bolster existing initiatives; initiate brand new projects
  • Satisfy basic needs.

To be eligible the charity accounts must have unrestricted net assets of not more than £200,000 or of less than one year’s income.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
