The Hedley Foundation is inviting applications from eligible applicants to help and improve the quality of life of people in the UK, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

They aim to achieve this by making grants, within budget, to registered charities for the benefit of young people, disabled people, elderly people, the terminally ill and otherwise disadvantaged people and their carers.

The following targeted beneficiaries are supported by The Foundation:
a) Youth;
b) Disabled;
c) Elderly and Terminally ill;
d) Carers, homeless people, ex-offenders and those about to leave custody.

Utilize This Offer

The Hedley Foundation is an endowed grant-giving charitable foundation that supports small to medium-sized UK registered charities operating across the spectrum of social need.

Applicant organizations must meet the following criteria:
1. Be a small- to the mid-size UK registered charity;
2. Submit an application that is:
a) not for salaries, building construction, general running costs, transport, financial deficits, or overseas projects;
b) not on behalf of a church, museum, an individual or an exclusive group of people;
3. Have not received a previous grant from The Foundation within the last 18 months.

They award grants to those charities that are able to demonstrate quantifiable outcomes to beneficiaries.

Typically, grants of up to £5,000 are regularly made and occasional larger sums are given to charities where high impact can be achieved. Similarly, smaller charities often benefit from smaller grants of £250 upwards.

The Trustees meet four times per year to review grant applications which should be received at least 28 days BEFORE the review meeting. The forthcoming meetings are as follows:
• 28 July 2021;
• 27 October 2021.
