Funding to support disadvantaged Young People
25 Apr 2023 by Mazeline Hemmings
Local community-led grassroots groups and organisations can apply for funding to support young people who are facing difficult challenges and barriers to accessing support and opportunities.
The Allan Lane Foundation’s Young People’s Programme is aimed at disadvantaged and marginalised young people aged 12-21 who are experiencing or may have already suffered significant issues within their lives. This could, for example, include organisations that focus their work on young people within the criminal justice system or those at risk of offending, looked after children or care leavers, those with significant mental health concerns or complex needs, or those whose experiences could seriously impact their transition into adulthood.
Trustees meet to discuss grant applications three times a year, generally in February, June and October.
