FUNDING: Aspirational Awards - Grants for Care Experienced Young People

The Life Changes Trust's Aspirational Awards is a grant scheme aimed at supporting care experienced people aged 21-26 to think big about their future and transform their lives with a significant grant to help them reach their potential.  The fourth round of funding is now open.

The Aspirational Awards will fund applications which:

  • Are likely to have a long-term, positive impact on the life of the applicant
  • Will support the applicant to achieve their aspirations in life
  • Will help the applicant to progress in something they have already made steps towards achieving.

Applicants who were successful in previous rounds included applications for funding to start businesses; specialized qualifications such as mechanics and tree surgeons; personal development courses; photography equipment; volunteering abroad; specialist make-up and baking courses.

Applications are open from the 16 April 2018 until midnight on Sunday 3 June 2018.  Advice on applications is available by emailing ceypapplications@lifechangestrust.org.uk or calling 0141 212 9611.  Applications can be submitted electronically here

Further information is available from the Life Changes Trust website and a promotional video can be viewed here.
