The Peter Harrison Foundation offers grants (no maximum) to charities in the South East of England to assist children and young people who are disabled, disadvantaged, ill, homeless or at risk of crime, truancy or addiction.
The Foundation promotes the belief that education and sport provide the key stepping stones to self-development, creation of choice, confidence building and self reliance. Its overall objective is to make these stepping stones more readily available to those who may be disabled or disadvantaged and who may not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their self potential.
Trustees welcome applications for the following types of project:
- Projects that work with or benefit disabled, chronically or terminally ill children, and provide support for their parents and carers.
- Projects that help to engage children or young people at risk of crime, truancy or addiction.
- Projects organised for young people at risk of homelessness, or that provide new opportunities for homeless young people.
UK registered charities may apply. Applications from local branches of national charities are accepted, although they should have a separate legal constitution or the endorsement of their national head office.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
