The Alec Dickson Trust - young people and volunteering
The Alec Dickson Trust supports young people who are able to demonstrate that through volunteering or community service they can enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society. The Trust provides grants of up to £500 to individuals or groups of young people aged 30 or under, to help them put their ideas into action and run projects that benefit the lives of others – particularly the most marginalised and disadvantaged. It especially welcomes the opportunity to support innovative projects.
Who can apply?
In this round of funding, the Trust welcomes applications from UK-based volunteering or community service projects, organised and run by people under 30 years old, which directly or indirectly respond to COVID-19. Funding does not cover overseas trips or gap year projects.
