The Boshier-Hinton Foundation exists to improve quality of life for people with disabilities or learning difficulties, and their families. They fund institutions providing facilities and advocacy for children and adults, and other registered charitable trusts. They do not make grants directly to individuals.
This programme provides small grants (£500–2,500) for recreational trips and holidays for groups of children who are disabled or disadvantaged. Children must be aged 13 and under. The decision time-scale is 6 weeks.
The Dickie Bird Foundation helps young people to take part in sport, by funding sports equipment and clothing. The foundation considers grants from all recognised sports. It only awards grants to individuals. (Teams and groups should not apply.)
The foundation’s vision is to encourage young people, irrespective of social circumstances, culture or ethnicity, in the sport they choose. By doing this they aim to improve those young people’s chances both inside and outside sport. They will only fund disadvantaged children aged under 16 for essential sports equipment and clothing. (Travel or coaching will not be funded.)
