The trust makes grants with at least 40% of its income through two schemes. These are what we call “small grants” and the “David Bellew Memorial Fund”. The remaining 60% of its income is given out as two Major Grants.
Each year the trust will support two projects within the UK with a substantial grant. These will be projects working specifically with young people, providing alternative education. The trustees will decide which projects they want to support in each year, and will award these grants in October of each year. Read More
The Trust encourages applications from any voluntary and community group, or any non-profit making organisation, providing that the purpose for which they are seeking a grant is charitable and is for the benefit of young people living within the UK, or involved with developing their education through alternative means.
