Baily Thomas Charitable Fund small grants

UK charities, voluntary organisations and schools can apply for grants to help both children and adults suffering from severe learning difficulties. Please see their website for the full eligibility criteria.

The funding is being made available through the Baily Thomas General grants programme, and can be used to purchase equipment, support capital works as well as covering project and core costs. Previous grants have been used to support capital works for residential, nursing and respite care, and schools; employment schemes including woodwork, crafts, printing and horticulture; play schemes and play therapy schemes; day and social activities centres; support for families, including respite schemes; independent living schemes; support in the community schemes; and Snoezelen rooms.

The Fund operates a programme for small grants which awards grants up to a maximum of £5,000. These appeals are considered solely by the Chair of Trustees and outside of the usual meetings in March, June and November.

Applications for small grants are made in the same way as general grants and you must complete the online application form. Such appeals are usually considered on a monthly basis, or as demand decrees.

The closing dates for the deadline for applications do not apply.

Appeals for funding of below £10,000 will be considered through the small grants programme. Where the recommendation by the Chair is to award more than the maximum of £5,000, the appeal will be referred to the next Main Grant Board Meeting.
