The Dulverton Trust has launched a new website which has better functionality and is mobile-ready. They have also re-opened for applications to be considered for the June 2018 board meeting and beyond, after temporarily closing due to overwhelming demand.
The Trust's biggest category of funding is youth opportunities where they aim to level the playing field for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. They support a wide range of activities including: adventure training and character building, employability skills and opportunities, widening horizons and raising aspirations, youth social action, improving educational attainment, mentoring and coaching, alternatives to local authority care homes, and providing a safe place for young people to socialise and develop.
General welfare is their second largest category and includes strengthening family relationships, support for offenders, ex-offenders and their families, supporting rural areas, reducing isolation of the elderly, foodbanks, adoption support, homelessness, early years’ intervention and looked after young people. Conservation, preservation, peace and humanitarian support and Africa are other areas that receive support.
