Funding from The Wessex Youth Trust11-Sep-2018
The Wessex Youth Trust is currently accepting applications for funding from charities and similar organisations to help children and young people.
The Wessex Youth Trust was set up in 1999 shortly before the wedding of HRH The
Prince Edward and Miss Sophie Rhys-Jones. It was established to help, support and advance registered charities which provide opportunities specifically
for children and young people.
The charities they support show an example of the huge cross-section of different youth-orientated causes and needs: from hospices, hospital beds and
incubators to holiday clubs, sports organisations and outreach programmes; from inner city drop-in centres, child protection training and helplines
to drug prevention schemes and sex education; from deaf, blind and speech impaired support groups and special needs libraries, to theatre, dance
and music-related groups.
The Wessex Youth Trust is offering funding to support projects which provide opportunities to help, support and advance children and young people up to the age of 21 years only.
The Trust is especially interested in hearing from self-help organisations and to charities requiring support to ‘prime the pumps’ for development
and more extensive fund-raising initiatives. The Trust does advise specific project funding requests are preferred to more general ‘pot-filling’.
The deadline for applications is November 1st 2018, with further dates to be announced at a later time.
