We have a grant of up to £250,000 to offer to organisations in Birmingham, Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire who are planning capital projects to help young people under the age of 25 years.

We are looking for projects with the objective of improving personal development of young people, through creating opportunities within the region; bids must be primarily focussed on training, education or rehabilitation.

There are no application forms.

Submissions, limited to one side of A4 paper, should include; an overview of the organisation, details of the proposed project and its benefits, an estimation of the total cost, and how the name of The Norton Foundation will be commemorated.

Bids must be received before 14th February 2020 by post to The Correspondent, The Norton Foundation, The Paddock, Bwlch-Y-Gwynt Road, Llysfaen, Colwyn Bay, LL29 8DQ

From these bids a short list will be selected and invited to submit detailed proposals and out of these a selection will be made of organisations to present in person to the Norton Foundation Trustees.

A previously successful applicant wrote:

Without the support of the Norton Foundation, we would never have reached the place we are in our journey today. The Capital Grant programme showed, not only us but many other funders and supporters that our vision to create our own children and youth centre was achievable. The Norton Foundation valued our work and commitment to our community and without them we’d still be in a small rented building, struggling with an unsuitable and significant lack of space. We are forever indebted to the trust for their support and belief in our work. Thank you.”
