Applications Open for DMTFYP’s Central Grants Programme in the UK & Ireland!

Deadline: 25 July 2017

The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People is seeking applications for its “Central Grants Programme” with an aim to identify the most effective projects helping disadvantaged young people in the UK and Ireland.

Focus Areas

  • Improving the education of young people
    The Foundation is investing in the future by supporting young people in the vital areas of education, awareness and training. Through targeted grant giving the Foundation aims to facilitate a better future for young people by supporting local charities. Education funding generally will be given for training/re-training, educational equipment, activity-based learning leading to accreditation and sports equipment.
  • Improving the health of young people
    The Foundation is committed to relieving suffering and supporting young people whilst they are undergoing treatment and care. Health funding generally will be given for medical equipment, care facilities, activity based holidays, proactive health awareness campaigns and hospices.

Target Groups

The Foundation has a particular focus on supporting these target groups:

  • Children and young people with disabilities
  • Children and young people who are sick in hospital
  • Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care)

Funding Information

  • Grant applications for up to £5,000 can be approved by the Director, up to £10,000 can be approved by the Grants Committee, and applications for more than £10,000 are recommended to the Trustees for final approval.
  • The Foundation is a small charity and generally will not make awards of over £30,000 (per year).
  • Funding can be requested for up to 2 years for any particular project.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Central grants can only be awarded to charities registered in England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
  • Charities must be registered for a period of at least 12 months before the Foundation can consider awarding funding.
  • Charities with overdue reporting (e.g. annual return) to these monitoring bodies will not be considered.
  • Central grants are aimed at supporting smaller charities and therefore the Foundation will typically not consider large charities showing normal charitable expenditure of more than £2 million (except for children’s hospices, which fall under one of DMTFYP‘s core themes).
  • Charities larger than this may still apply, but please note preference may be given to applications from smaller charities.
  • Grants are only awarded to charities working with young people (meaning babies, children and young people up to 25 years old) that are considered to be most in need.
  • Projects must work directly with the young people or provide facilities for their direct benefit.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.
