Individuals, small groups or organisations in the UK who have a new skillful idea which they want to try out can apply for grants of between £250 and £5,000.
Schools and groups of school children can also apply as long as the idea is technically inventive and original and, if it worked, delivering either an environmental or social benefit. The fund is looking for ideas that:
• are based on a technical idea or innovation;
• could deliver a social or environmental benefit;
• are intriguing, inventive and have an element of fun.
The fund has been set up in memory of Peter Williams by his family. Once the fund’s allocation for the year has been used, it will be closed for applications until the following year.
