Central grants will be awarded to charities supporting children under DMTFYP’s three target group:
Children and Young people with disabilities;
Children and Young people who are sick in hospital;
Children and young people who are life limited (requiring palliative care).
Central grants can only be awarded to charities, or Community Interest Companies, registered in England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Your charity (or CIC) must be registered for a period of at least 12 months before the Foundation can consider awarding funding.
Charities (or CIC) with overdue reporting (e.g. annual return) to these monitoring bodies will not be considered.
Central grants are aimed at supporting smaller charities and therefore the Foundation will typically not consider large charities showing the normal charitable expenditure of more than £2 million (except for children’s hospices, which fall under one of DMTFYP‘s core themes).
Charities larger than this may still apply, but please note preference may be given to applications from smaller charities.
