The Brian Roycroft Fund

The Brian Roycroft Fund supports care leavers aged 16 to 25 living in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland to achieve their aspirations. Grants will help young people to move into settled, safe accommodation; enter further or higher education; find satisfying employment or achieve good health and a positive sense of wellbeing. The grant request should be to meet exceptional or difficult costs that are not the statutory responsibility of the Local Authority.

Grants of up to £1000 to aid transition/development and can cover things like driving lessons and other courses/qualifications to aid development/wellbeing/employment path.
Applications must be made by groups/charities or statutory agencies supporting the young care leavers.
Rolling applications assessed twice per year.
