The Caledonia Investments Charitable Foundation is accepting applications for its Grant Program to support community projects in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly which address the interrelated issues of financial planning, debt management and the financial education of adults and children.
- They expect your project to address one of the following themes:
- Early intervention: Projects working with a wide community of at-risk individuals and families in the early stages of managing debt, that teach basic financial skills as part of a broader package of support.
- Preventative: Projects working with individuals or families identified as being at particular risk of financial adversity with support given through education, training and awareness-raising.
- Alleviation: Projects working to provide information, advice and guidance for those already experiencing ongoing financial distress.
- Grants range from £5,000 – £20,000, although higher or lower awards are available depending on the circumstances.
- As part of your application, they expect to see details of measurable and tangible outcomes that you expect will arise from this investment. These could include, but are not limited to:
- The numbers of individuals in current financial distress you expect to support through debt management plans or other formal debt advice programmes.
- How your project will help to improve your clients’ mental health and how you will measure these changes.
- How your project will help families to improve their understanding of basic budgeting practices and their confidence in financial issues, and how this will be measured.
