Deadline: 1 July 2018
The Baily Thomas Charitable Fund is seeking applications for its grant to aid the research into learning disability and to aid the care and relief of those affected by learning disability by making grants to voluntary organisations working in this field.
The Baily Thomas Charitable Fund was established in 1970 under the authority of the Court of Protection in London on behalf of Mr Frank Bruce Baily Thomas, who was mentally disabled. It was to receive shares with an approximate value of £780,000 and whose objects would be mainly
- research into the causes of mental handicap and mental illness and
- promoting the care and alleviation of those who suffered from these disabilities.
Grants are awarded for amounts from £250 and depend on a number of factors including the purpose, the total funding requirement and the potential sources of other funds including, in some cases, matching funding.
- Learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities), and autism are their priorities for funding. They consider projects for children or adults. They do not give grants for research into or care of people with mental illness, dyslexia, dyspraxia nor ADHD, if they do not also have learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities).
- Charities and organisations who aim to aid the research into learning disability and to aid the care and relief of those affected by learning disability are eligible to apply.
- Grants will not normally be awarded to individuals.
- Funding is available only to organisations within and projects based in the UK.
