Emma's Trust helps young people who, like Emma, are interested in sports and performing arts. We offer financial support to young people in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire who may be restricted in undertaking sports and performing arts due to financial restraints.
Emma’s Trust also supports asthma research. An annual 10% donation from our award fund goes to Asthma UK, the charity dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the 5.2 million people in the UK whose lives are affected by asthma. www.asthma.org.uk
We are a fully registered charity and this year we aim to give at least £10,000 to young people who need our help. Each application is individually assessed, the Trustees looking at the impact that the award will have on the young person / group applying, evidence of an applicant previously sharing and engaging with other young people and the merit of the chosen activity. The Trustees meet to review and decide on applications four times throughout the year: April, July, October and January. So, please apply in good time if you need funding by a specific date.
Individuals, groups or clubs are eligible and we would encourage teachers, especially to nominate worthy students. Please note: we fund applicants up to the age of 21 and unfortunately we're unable to contribute towards university fees.
Please help us make Emma's Trust a success, go our 'DONATE' page to see how.
