Trust supports young people who, through volunteering or community service, aim to enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society.

They provide grants of up to £500 to individuals or groups of young people aged 30 or under, to help them put their ideas into action and run projects that benefit the lives of others – particularly the most marginalised and disadvantaged.

When they assess projects, they’re looking for:

  • Volunteering: They support projects that support and encourage youth volunteering.  They particularly like to fund projects that involve lots of volunteers, and/or encourage these young people to stay engaged as volunteers in the long term.
  • Need: They support young people who run projects that benefit disadvantaged communities and individuals. They’re looking for projects that identify a specific need, and propose to carry out activities that will clearly help to address this need. Often it’s about young volunteers helping to give others the opportunity to engage in activities, have a voice, and meet people that they otherwise would not have been able to.
  • Innovation: Ultimately they’re looking for youth volunteering projects that help to improve communities, but if the project is new and exciting then even better! They particularly like to fund volunteer initiatives that are innovative and try to do things a bit differently, such as using social media creatively or using existing resources in new ways.

Core Values

  • Supportive: The Alec Dickson aims to be a supportive trust which encourages young people to volunteer as much as possible.
  • Empowering: Their Trust endeavors to empower young people to lead volunteering projects spanning many different fields.
  • Responsible: The Trust will be responsible in how it uses its funds and expects similar reliability from those receiving a grant.
