Funding for Projects that Support Disadvantaged Young People (UK)

Smaller charities and Special Needs Schools in the UK can apply to the small grants programme of the St James’s Place Charitable Foundation for grants of up to £10,000.

The Foundation will support projects that provide services to young people (under the age of 25) who suffer from physical or mental health difficulties or conditions, a life threatening degenerative illness, or who are disadvantaged (including young people under the age of 25 caring for others). Applicants can expect to receive a visit from a representative of the Foundation who will report back to the Trustees before a decision on awarding a grant is made.

Previously funded projects include:

Hope Support Services – a grant of £2,500 to help fund two-part time youth workers to work with young people at youth sessions, trips and activities and on specific projects.

Vauxhall City Farm Riding Therapy Centre which received a grant of £9,912 to help fund the salary costs of a qualified Riding Instructor to coach riding sessions for disabled and disadvantaged children and young people aged 4 to 18.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
