We are dedicated to helping disadvantaged and vulnerable young people and children transform their lives. Under our ABLE banner, our priority is to make a difference through targeted grant support, helping local and regional community groups and charities across the UK and Europe to deliver projects which provide access to opportunities and improve wellbeing.
Across our grant making processes, we prefer to fund projects which provide and facilitate access to education; provide tools and opportunities through equipment, facilities and training; and relieve suffering, improve treatment, care and wellbeing.
Education is a vital tool which unlocks knowledge and learning, enabling young people to fulfill their potential by opening up choices and opportunities. The Foundation wants to support disadvantaged children and young people to help ensure they have access to education and opportunities for growth and development which many of us take for granted.
Funding is geared towards fulfilling equipment needs, providing training and supporting refurbishment projects which will make a lasting difference for as many children as possible. When funding educational courses, we have a preference to those which lead to accredited and recognised qualifications.
Under its core remit of health, the Foundation strives to improve the care, treatment experiences and outcomes for children who are sick or have chronic or long-term conditions.
Due to our focus on education, we have a particular interest in supporting projects which provide or enhance access to educational opportunities for sick or life-limited children. To do this, we partner with a range of expert charities that deliver care and treatment for young people.
The Foundation wants to ensure that young people who are sick or suffering from chronic and sometimes life-limiting conditions receive the best support possible. Through its targeted grant-giving, the Foundation identifies projects that enhance treatment experiences, provide support, care and condition management for sick young people and make a lasting difference to young people as they undergo treatment or therapy.
Funds raised in each country are targeted to support local causes within that country. Within our criteria of education and health, the Foundation has a number of different grant-making mechanisms.
