Grants of up to £2,000 are available for projects to improve resilience within communities of interest, such as people who are living with disabilities or chronic illness, in poverty, homeless, elderly and isolated, or have another demonstrable significant need. Funds can be used towards the costs of sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. The Foundation is also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting the community.
Larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 will be unsuccessful.
