About

The Alec Dickson Trust supports young people who, through volunteering or community service, aim to enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society.

The Alec Dickson Trusts supports young people who, through volunteering or community service, aim to enhance the lives of others, particularly those most marginalised by society.

Applications for grants, not normally in excess of £500, are invited from individuals aged 30 and under or from small groups of young people who believe their actions to be in pursuit of the aims of the Trust.

Trustees will meet quarterly to consider applications.

All applications for support will be judged on their own merits and in relation to how they expect to achieve or further the aims of the Trust.

The Trust will expect recipients to report on how any support was used and how it helped to fulfil the aims of the project.

In the spirit of Alec Dickson and of the Trust, all Trustees are young people aged under 30 with a commitment to volunteering or community service.

Applications for grants can be returned to the Trust using the attached application form.  Additional information may be attached.

Please note: it is highly unlikely that applications from young people embarking on organised ‘gap year’ projects overseas (with organisations like Project Trust, Raleigh International, or Health Projects Abroad) or requesting a grant for college/university course fees will match with the Trust’s funding criteria.

Completed application forms should be returned to:

The Secretary, The Alec Dickson Trust, 18-24 Lower Clapton Road, Hackney, London E5 0PD
