Vulnerable YP and Child Carers Fund

Grants are available to support young people challenged by abuse and addiction, those who are young carers, and those who are homeless or without a safe place to call home.

The 7 Stars Foundation makes grants to projects which support young people (16 years and under) who are challenged by abuse or addiction, who are young carers, or who are homeless/without a safe place to call home.

Applications will be considered from organisations who require funding in the areas of:

  • Abuse
  • Addiction

  • Homelessness.

The grant funding is intended to support young people (aged 16 and under) challenged by abuse and addiction, those who are young carers, and those who are homeless or without a safe space to call home.

Funding is offered across four streams:

  • Project grants to cover the costs of projects which:
    • Enable young people to have the best start in life and aim high.

  • Direct grants funding to individuals affected by the themes we priorities, supported by outreach/social/care workers or legal professionals. (Applications must be submitted by the supporting professional/organisation.)
