The Hedley Foundation Grants

The Trustees seek to help and improve the quality of life of people in the UK, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. This is achieved by making grants, within budget, to registered charities for the benefit of young people, disabled people, elderly people, the terminally ill and otherwise disadvantaged people and their carers.

About The Hedley Foundation Grants

Who We Support

Social welfare lies at the heart of The Hedley Foundation's activities. In the last 12 months, The Foundation made grants to 250 small charities. The following categories of funding are supported by The Foundation:

  • Youth Support
  • Disabled Support
  • Supporting the Elderly and Terminally ill
  • Miscellaneous Support


We award grants to those charities that are able to demonstrate quantifiable outcomes to beneficiaries. Typically, grants of up to £5,000 are regularly made and occasional larger sums are given to charities where high impact can be achieved. Similarly, smaller charities often benefit from smaller grants of £250 upwards.

You should meet the following criteria:

  • You are a small- to mid-size UK registered charity
  • Your application is not for salaries, building construction, general running costs, transport, financial deficits or overseas projects
  • Your application is not on behalf of a church, museum, an individual or exclusive group of people
  • You have not received a previous grant from The Foundation within the last 18 months.
