Links to potential funding organisations.

We've previously funded thousands of 12-25 year olds assisting with projects, ideas and trips that helped to expand their horizons and further their personal development and career options.  We're immensely proud of both the assistance we provided as well as the achievements of the awardees themselves.     

We are not currently running our funding programme at this time, but hope to look at this again in the future. 

For now, we're concentrating on developing projects and resources to help both strengthen the Trust going forward and to enable us to continue supporting young people throughout the region. Projects include the evolution of our Education Programme, our DWP / County Council aligned projects and continued development of the icanbea... platform.

We continue support any current awardees who were allocated funding during our previous grant funding programme. If you have a active grant award from us and have any questions about your trip, project or award, please don't hesitate to contact us.


We know that fundraising can be a daunting task. We have put together a list of Potential Funders who may be able to provide funding support for personal projects and experience-broadening activities.
