The Balcombe Charitable Trust

3 November, 2017

The Balcombe Trust are continuing to look at funding innovative projects working with homeless and/or unemployed or not in education young people (NEETS) in the UK. We are particularly interested in projects working with young women.

To this end they are running a trial scheme where they invite competitive proposals twice per year.

They now wish to award a small number of grants of £5,000 to £25,000.

If your organisation works in this area and has an annual income of between £500,000 and £3,000,000, you are invited to apply with a short proposal (maximum 1,000 words) plus budget and latest annual report and financial statements.

Your proposal should be very clear about what you hope to achieve or learn from the project, and how you intend to evaluate its success.

Your application should be sent by email only to  and must be received by midnight on Sunday 26th November 2017.

Successful applicants will be informed by Monday 12th February 2018.

Please note that for the current funding period we can only accept applications:

  •   from registered charities
  •   working in the UK with young people who are homeless or not in education or employment

We are open to proposals for joint funding, but will require full disclosure of other funding organisation/s
We are also willing to consider grants for two- or three-year projects, with the understanding that this will
always be dependent on progress and reporting.
