The Magdalen Hospital Trust is currently accepting applications for its grant programme to provide women and girls on the streets a safe, desirable and happy retreat from their wretched and distressful circumstances.
The Trust makes grants to promote the welfare of young people, under the age of 25 years, who suffer from various effects of social deprivation, abuse, mental and physical handicap, inadequate housing, lack of education or training, and the problems derived from unemployment and broken families.
- Grants from £500 – £2,000.
What will be Funded?
- They prefer to fund project costs rather than core costs. Projects can include those that provide:
- training for work and personal development,
- clubs and play schemes,
- safeguarding education,
- mental health support and counselling,
- emergency care.
What will not be Funded?
- Grants are not given to:
- non-registered charities,
- charities without a website,
- national charities,
- charities with an annual income in excess of £150,000,
- overseas charities with no links to a UK charity.
- UK-based Charities/Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs) working with vulnerable children and young adults, especially those at risk of sexual and other forms of exploitation.
