The Kelly Family Charitable Trust awards grants of up to £5,000 to UK registered charities whose activities involve all or most family members, where possible, in initiatives that seek to tackle problems facing one or more of its members.
The three areas that the Trust wishes to support are:
- Interventions and support that help families to manage better and prevent the fracture of the family unit, eg relationship counseling, mediation;
- Families where sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drugs abuse threaten the integrity of the family unit; and
- Prisoners and in particular their families, during and after the period of imprisonment.
The overall objective is to reinforce the potential benefit and support that family members as a unit can give to each other.
The trust prefers to support charities whose income is below £500,000. However, larger charities with pioneering pilot projects will be considered.
The Trust will consider both capital and revenue grants. The Trust is happy to support requests for core funding as well as project-based grants, and actively encourages applications from relatively new organisations to help them become established.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. Applications are reviewed bi-annually. Application deadline for the meetings are on 1 March and 1 September annually.
