A proactive funder dedicated to supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people to access the opportunities and gain the skills they need to lead fulfilled lives and meet their potential. We seek out exciting partnerships with organizations who put young people at the centre of their work.
We fund innovative youth charities over three year periods who can demonstrate the difference they are making. We seek to add-value to our grants where we can, for example through supporting thematic learning; monitoring and evaluation; sector collaboration; expansion of proven initiatives or piloting of new ideas.
We work across the South East and South West – specifically in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight; Wiltshire; Berkshire and more recently Sussex – primarily supporting charities that are rooted in those communities. Occasionally we fund national charities that have a unique role to fill that fits with our strategy.
Linkenholt Countryside Adventure is a beautiful site in Hampshire available for schools, youth groups and charities to use. The site is set within a 2000 acre estate offering real peace and tranquility. There is a modern building with kitchen, hot showers, toilets and enough tables and chairs to seat 50 people. Or you may prefer to roam in the beautiful countryside and set up some tents! The site is managed by the charity Releasing Potential. To find out more visit the website.
