Paul Hamlyn Foundation
Of interest to Organisations dealing with Young People, Arts, Learning, Transition to Adulthood, Skills
Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s mission is to help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.
The eligibility criteria for each of their different funding opportunities varies.
They have a particular interest in supporting young people and a strong belief in the importance of the arts. Two of their various funding programmes are Young People and the Arts:
Education & learning through the arts
They want to improve people’s education and learning through the arts
The arts play an important role in enriching young people’s learning and educational experiences. Learning through the arts can engage and inspire young people, support key educational outcomes and develop skills that prepare young people for life beyond school. For many young people, particularly those experiencing the most disadvantage, the only opportunity to gain access to arts education is at school.
Investing in young people
They want to support the development and growth of organisations investing in young people and positive change
Much of their work aims to benefit young people but it is those who work directly with them who often make a difference to their lives, especially if they are vulnerable or face complex transitions to adulthood. They want to help organisations at different stages of development to improve, consolidate and spread those good practices which are endeavouring to make young lives better.
Previous grants in the above categories range from £30,000 to £300,000.
Generally most of their different funding opportunities do not have a deadline, but are on a rolling basis.
