DM Thomas Foundation for Young People funding deadline!7 October 2015
The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People is dedicated to helping disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and children. The priority of the organisation is to make a difference through targeted grant support, helping local and regional community groups and charities across Europe to deliver projects which improve access to opportunities and improve well-being. Across their grant making processes, the organisation prefers to fund projects which provide and facilitate access to education; provide tools and opportunities through equipment, facilities and training; and relieve suffering, improve treatment, care and wellbeing.
The foundation is currently receiving applications for its central grants. The deadline for applications is the 13th of October. Applications working in the areas of education or health with one of the four following chosen focus groups are selected or considered:
- Children and young people with disabilities
- Children and young people who are sick in hospital
- Children and young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
- Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)
If favoured, grant applications for up to £10,000 can be approved by the 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.
