Applying for a Grant

The application process is simple. Print off a copy of the Application Form and return it to us at :  The Care Leavers' Foundation, PO Box 202, Bala, LL23 &ZB. You can also scan your form and email

We are still a small charity and it can take up to thirteen weeks before you get a response to your grant application, although in most cases we try and handle straightforward applications more quickly than this. If you want to phone to check progress, please leave it at least two weeks between posting your application and calling us. The number to call is 01678 540 598. This number is not manned 24 hours.      

If you have a genuinely urgent need that you think we can help with then try calling before you send your form in. We will do what we can but please note we are not set up to deal with ‘instant payments’ except in really special circumstances.   

You can find out more about what we are most likely to give grants for by reading our Grant Applications
Framework and Guidance Document. View and print the Application Form here. The more information you are able to give us the easier it will be for us to make a decision about your application. We may  phone you to discuss the application with you, and we may get in touch with the references you provide us with.

We accept applications form care leavers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Care leavers from the Republic of Ireland should visit the website of sister charity Care Leavers Ireland
