Organisation: Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust
Up to: £60000

The Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust’s Investing in Young People grant programme seeks to support disadvantaged young people living at the margins of society; with the aim of improving their skills, building their confidence and resilience and supporting their transition into independence.

The Trust is interested to hear from organisations in Kent working with:

  • disengaged, disadvantaged and/or vulnerable young people aged 14-25
  • young people in or leaving care aged 14-25
  • young offenders and those at risk of offending aged 14-25
  • unemployed young people – aged 16-25, not in education, training or employment (NEETS)


To be eligible to apply, applicants must be:

  • a registered charity, CIC, social enterprise or other properly constituted not-for-profit organisation1 with a management committee with at least three unrelated members
  • working to benefit young people living in Kent. Please note Greater London boroughs, previously within Kent are not eligible
  • able to provide at least two years of published financial accounts • Grants can be paid only into a UK bank account in the organisation’s name


Extra priority will be given to groups that:

  • work in a particularly disadvantaged or deprived area
  • have limited access to other sources of income
  • clearly define the need they are addressing
  • clearly demonstrate the benefit to young people
  • demonstrate a commitment to service user involvement
  • can demonstrate partnership working
  • offer matched funding opportunities


Organisations can apply for either:

  • a one-off grant of up to £30,000
  • a grant of between £5,000 and £20,000 per annum, for a maximum of three years


Please note, the total grant cannot be greater than 50% of your most recent annual turnover. Funding requests to cover the core costs of an existing service should ideally unlock new opportunities or extend the service in some way.
