Please Note this Fund is now Closed for Applications
The Alec Dickson Trust supports young people who, through volunteering or community service, aim to enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society.
Applications for grants, of up to £500, are invited from individuals aged 30 and under or from small groups of young people who believe their actions to be in pursuit of the aims of the Trust.
Trustees will meet quarterly to consider applications. All applications for support will be judged on their own merits and in relation to how they expect to achieve or further the aims of the Trust. The Trust will expect recipients to report on how any support was used and how it helped to fulfill the aims of the project.
In the spirit of Alec Dickson and of the Trust, all Trustees are young people aged under 30 with a commitment to volunteering or community service.
