Grants of up to £1,000 will be available to UK registered charities providing support for children and young people in care and care leavers.

The funding will be awarded by the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust to charities that have an operating income and expenditure of between £100,000 and £1 million. The Trust will continue to prioritise charities that work in BAME communities, in light of Black Lives Matter and the growing awareness that these communities have been disproportionately affected by the Covid 19 crisis.

The fund will be open to applications from the 1st July 2023 until the 31st July 2023.
