We are pleased to offer a £40,000 Care Leavers Programme, thanks to funding from The Local Authorities’ Mutual Investment Trust Limited and a generous local donor.

The programme is offering grants between £5,000 and £10,000 to local authorities and charitable organisations supporting young care leavers.

The grant should help to address any of the multitude of challenges that care leavers face and provide experiences or opportunities from which they may not otherwise benefit.

Applications can be made for projects, or organisations may submit an application on behalf of specific individual(s), where these requests are supported by the beneficiary’s local authority Personal Advisor or other responsible youth worker (to be considered on a case by case basis).
