DM Thomas Foundation for Young People
Applications are received for quarterly deadlines from registered charities and are first assessed by the Foundation office, with a shortlist of approximately twenty of the strongest and regionally representative applications put forward for consideration by their Grants Committee. The Grants Committee comprises independent members and members nominated by the Foundation’s business partners and meets quarterly to discuss the applications. There is approximately £200,000 available to distribute each quarter.
Applications working in the areas of education or health with one of our three chosen focus groups are selected or considered:
- 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).
