The Bupa UK Foundation has announced a new Healthy Futures funding programme focusing on young adults aged 18 to 25.

Grants Available

It shall be noted that the majority of grants awarded by the Bupa UK Foundation are for £20,000 or under. A small number of grants have been awarded within the £20,000 to £50,000 range, and occasionally grants of over £50,000 are awarded.
