The Fund aims to help young people (aged 15 – 30) who are disadvantaged or at risk of criminal involvement to stay out of trouble and assist in the rehabilitation of offenders. Grants are usually no more than £15,000 per annum, and to make sure grants of this size have an impact, the Weaver’s Company will not fund large organisations.
Grants are normally awarded to registered charities or organisations in the process of applying for registration. To be eligible for funding, local organisations such as those working in a village, estate or small town should normally have an income of less than £100,000. Those working across the UK should normally have an income of not more than £250,000. Grants are usually given for one year.
