The Hedley Foundation is offering a grants programme to help and improve the quality of life of people in the UK, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Hedley Foundation is an endowed grant giving charitable foundation which supports small to medium sized UK registered charities operating across the spectrum of social need.
This is achieved by making grants, within budget, to registered charities for the benefit of young people, disabled people, elderly people, the terminally ill and otherwise disadvantaged people and their carers.
- Typically, grants of up to £5,000 are regularly made and occasional larger sums are given to charities where high impact can be achieved.
- Similarly, smaller charities often benefit from smaller grants of £250 upwards.
You should meet the following criteria:
- You are a small- to mid-size UK registered charity
- Your application is not for salaries, building construction, general running costs, transport, financial deficits or overseas projects
- Your application is not on behalf of a church, museum, an individual or exclusive group of people
- You have not received a previous grant from The Foundation within the last 18 months.
Tips to aid successful applications
The Foundation receives over 800 applications per year of which around 250 are successful. As a guide, you should:
- Complete the application concisely, avoiding acronyms or jargon
- Include a copy of your most recent set of audited accounts
- Include a breakdown of costs showing how the grant would be spent
- Clearly state the anticipated outcome or impact, together with who and how many people would benefit
- Ensure your contact details are accurate, specifically email and contact telephone numbers
