Thomas Wall Trust Accepting UK Applications for Summer 2024 Meeting
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for UK registered charities for specific projects that improve communication skills for disadvantaged adults and supports NEET people into employment.
The Trust views communication skills as critical capabilities for people who want to improve their employment prospects, self-confidence, resilience, and life chances.
The funding is for registered UK registered charities with an annual turnover of between £25,000 and £500,000 that are working to develop communication skills for people from disadvantaged groups who want to improve their employment prospects. Beneficiaries must gain at least one accredited vocational qualification during delivery.
As an inclusive charity, the Trust welcomes proposals which target people experiencing multiple deprivation or other groups demonstrably facing major hurdles to employment, especially women, people with physical, mental, or learning disabilities, and refugees.
Priority will be given to match funded projects and self-sustainable projects, with a view to becoming less reliant on grants in the future.
There is a two-stage application process.
The next deadline to submit a first stage application is 29 April 2024 for assessment at the July 2024 meeting.
