The Hollowford Trust invites applications for an annual award of around £2,500* for exciting, larger-scale youth projects, trips or events!

* The annual award amount will be set by trustees each year.

Youth workers and young people alike are invited to apply for this award to fund (or part-fund) a project, event or trip that falls within our existing charitable objectives and would have a significantly positive impact on the lives of many young people.

We hope to receive applications from:

  • Youth workers working in partnership with others
  • Larger projects that will benefit many young people
  • New creative projects which will provide opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds

The first stage of application is simple and short.  Just tell us your idea, who will it benefit and how much it will cost.  The deadline for this is 31/12/23, and the award will be made at the beginning of February 2024.
