Trusts & Foundations

The Youth Adventure Trust prides itself on developing stong relationships with local, regional and national charitable trusts and grant making foundations. Grants from charitable trusts and foundations enable us to provide sustainable funding for our 3 school year Youth Adventure Programme. We have a range of funding opportunities available where a grant from your charitable trust can make a tangible difference to the lives of the young people we support. 

We would be delighted to welcome you to our Programme to give you a real insight into how a grant could make a real difference to these young people.

Our funding needs range from individual project costs to small items of capital funding and in these difficult financial times, the all important core funding.

Some current trust support includes:

What a fantastic experience and opportunity for any child to be involved in. Testing their abilities with support and care in such a fun atmosphere is an ideal way for them to learn positively about themselves and others.
