Alec Dickson Trust

We support young people who, through volunteering or community service, aim to enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society.

What We Do

Volunteering

We support projects that support and encourage youth volunteering. We particularly like to fund projects that involve lots of volunteers, and/or encourage these young people to stay engaged as volunteers in the long term.

Need

We support young people who run projects that benefit disadvantaged communities and individuals. We’re looking for projects that identify a specific need, and propose to carry out activities that will clearly help to address this need. Often it’s about young volunteers helping to give others the opportunity to engage in activities, have a voice, and meet people that they otherwise would not have been able to.

Innovation

Ultimately we’re looking for youth volunteering projects that help to improve communities, but if the project is new and exciting then even better! We particularly like to fund volunteer initiatives that are innovative and try to do things a bit differently, such as using social media creatively or using existing resources in new ways.
