Stage 1 applications can be submitted up to 15 November 2019, with grants for successful applicants being made in February 2020.

Up to £50,000 per year is available to groups working to improve the life chances for some of the most disadvantaged children in England and Wales.

They are looking to support work with targeted groups of 0-3 year olds in England and Wales which will specifically improve the reach to these targeted groups and bring about improved defined outcomes for these targeted groups.

Grants may be awarded for one, two or three years. There is no minimum grant size and the maximum will be £50,000 per annum. The Trust is happy to consider complete or partial funding and accepts overheads as part of a budget.

They will be looking for proposals which:

  • have defined outcomes built in with clear measurement tools and evaluation procedures in place;
  • have the flexibility to adapt to changing external factors;
  • have wide application or which have relevance for specific groups;
  • look to build on existing good practice or to trial new work.


Successful organisations must be prepared to share learning from the funded work with other organisations, to increase the impact.

Charities registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales can apply.
