We are an independent grant giving charity with a mission to Improve the health and social welfare of children and young people.

We do this through a grants programme managed for us by Foundation Scotland in the following areas: the provision of opportunities for children and young people especially in areas of social deprivation; the advancement of education, training or retraining particularly among unemployed people and providing unemployed people with work experience; the provision of financial assistance and other support to help unemployed people set up their own business.


We run a grants programme twice a year though Foundation Scotland. One programme is for one off grants of up to £3k and the second is for a grant of up to 3 years for a maximum of £3k per year
