The Peter Cruddas Foundation gives priority to programmes designed to help disadvantaged and disengaged young people between the ages of 14-30, to pursue pathways to Education, Training and Employment with the ultimate aim of helping them to become financially independent.
The foundation focuses on three main funding streams, which are:
- Pathways/support for young disadvantaged or disengaged people in the age range of 14 to 30 into education, training or employment
- Work experience/skills projects for young people aged 16 to 30
- Youth work in London particularly evening work for disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 30
The Foundation only supports registered charities and offers grants of generally between £500 – £25,000.
