Applications are invited from not-for-profit organisations working with young carers and young adult carers across the UK.
The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund has launched a new grants strategy for 2021. The Trust’s primary focus for 2021 is to help support the needs of young carers (round 1) and young people caught up in the criminal justice system (round 2). This marks a shift from previous years when the Trust focused its funding on unpaid adult carers and adult offenders.
In recognition of the huge impact the pandemic has had on children and young people across the UK, especially that those with caring responsibilities are disproportionately affected, the Trust has focused its funding on providing support to young carers and young adult carers to address learning gaps linked to the pandemic.
Registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies that are working within the UK and have a UK office can apply for grants of between £10,000 and £60,000 for a duration of six months to two years. (A maximum of £30,000 per year can be requested.)
The funding is not for standalone new projects, rather it’s to support work that ‘amplifies the impact’ of existing work with young carers (up to the age of 25) and develops existing support around learning and access to education and training.
Projects should start after 1 November 2021 for the following types of work:
The deadline for applications is 11 May 2021 (12noon).
