FUNDING: Field Family Charitable Trust – apply by 8 March 2022

Grants are available for charitable organisations in Greater London which provide services for young people (13-25 years) or the elderly.

Organisations within the boundaries of the M25 with an annual income of under £1million can apply for grants of £1,000 to £10,000, according to the need and the project. Multi-year funding is also considered.

To be eligible, organisations must not have reserves to the value of more than one year of their annual expenditure.

The Trust is happy to consider applications for a wide variety of purposes, such as outreach, engagement, equipment, furnishings, running costs, helplines. Local charities are favoured over national ones.

With regard to projects targeting vulnerable young people, they have a special interest in supporting NEET youth and the prevention of young people from offending, as well as in the integration/rehabilitation of ex-offenders.

Trustees meet twice a year, in April and October to consider applications. These must be submitted through their online form at least six weeks in advance of their meetings.

The date of their next meeting is 19 April 2022. The deadline for applying is, therefore, 8 March 2022.
