The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund

Grants are available to registered charities and organisations for proposals wanting to work with young people who have a criminal conviction or proposals focused on targeted work with high-risk young people on the edge of the criminal justice system.

The Trust’s funding opportunity for work with young people aged 11-25 with criminal convictions is currently open to application with a deadline of 23.59 on Sunday 21st May 2023. Projects supporting the following beneficiaries are likely to be prioritised:

  • Young people from Black or minorities / racialised communities
  • Young people who have experienced the care system, and/or
  • Young women and girls

Organisations wanting to make an application to work with high-risk young people on the edge of the criminal justice system can apply for a grant between Monday 18th September and Sunday 29th October 2023.

The Trust offers grants of up to £80,000 over a 2-year period. The maximum amount available per year is £40,000. Grants are for project costs rather than core funding.

The Trust is particularly interested in proposals that:

  • Demonstrate that they understand the wide range of challenges and issues that will need to be addressed to help a young person succeed after being released from a Young Offenders Institution or prison.
  • Have specific outcomes and targets related to individual development, health and well-being, employability, education, and social cohesion, and/or
  • Show existing work with young people who have been in the criminal justice system is already taking place and can evidence a track record of helping them to achieve positive outcomes.

The Trust usually visits more applicants than it awards grants to. The application process is:

  1. Completion of the online application form on the Triangle Trust website.
  2. The Trust’s representative(s) will visit shortlisted applicants.
  3. Grant awards are normally confirmed 5-6 months once the application deadline has passed.

Further information, guidance and an online application form is available at The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund

Charles Hayward Foundation – Small Grants Fund (Older people)

Grants are available up to £7000 for charities with an annual income of less than £350,000.

This programme wishes to fund preventative and early intervention programmes being delivered at the community level which allow older people to stay in their own homes and remain independent. 

They are particularly interested in seeking out programmes which show some creativity in improving the quality of life of older people which:

  • aim to alleviate isolation and depression in older people, including informal day care or social, physical and recreational activities
  • give practical help, assistance and support for older people living in their own homes
  • address the emotional and practical needs of older carers, or
  • meet the specific needs of people with dementia

Applications will be considered every three months (March, June, September and December). Visit their website Charles Hayward Foundation for further information.

The Burton celebrates 40 years of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse with a new family-friendly exhibition

The Burton at Bideford is delighted to be hosting a new exhibition celebrating 40 years since the publication of Michael Morpurgo’s beloved modern classic, War Horse. And what better place to celebrate than in the county where the author has lived since the 1970s.

The exhibition was curated to accompany a special 40th anniversary edition of the book published by Farshore in October 2022. The book features a new cover from fine arts photographer, Nine Francois, and is illustrated by the award-winning war and reportage artist, George Butler. 

Michael Morpurgo will be in conversation with Collections and Exhibitions Manager, Warren Collum, at the Burton Art Gallery and Museum on Sunday 18 June at 2pm.

40 Years of War Horse will be on display at the Burton from 22 May until 3 July. The Burton is open daily and admission is free.
