Kelly Family Charitable Trust
Grants are available for UK registered charities, working locally or regionally in England, Scotland or Wales, whose activities nurture and support family life.
Essential eligibility criteria:
The Trust offers both capital and revenue grants.
The funding is for charities whose activities involve all or most family members in initiatives that support and encourage the family to work as a cohesive unit in tackling problems that face one or more of its members. The overall objective is to reinforce the potential benefit and support that family members as a unit can give to each other.
The three principal areas that the charity wishes to support are:
Interventions that support families and help them in ways that prevent the fracture of the family unit, eg relationship counseling, mediation.
Families where sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drugs abuse threaten the integrity of the family unit.
Prisoners and in particular their families, during and after the period of imprisonment.
Applications are also considered for core funding from relatively new organisations seeking to become established.
