Peter Cruddas Foundation

The Peter Cruddas Foundation provides funding to registered charities for the following purposes:
o Pathways/support for young disadvantaged or disengaged people in the age range 14 to 30 years into education, training or employment;
o Work experience/skills projects for young people aged 16 to 30 years.
o Youth work in London, particularly evening work for disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 30 years.
There is no minimum or maximum grant level and projects can be funded for more than one year. However, the Foundation will require applicants to demonstrate that they can manage the amount they have applied for and how they intend to sustain the project after the grant has been spent.
During the financial year ending 31 March 2015 the Foundation awarded grants totalling £471,500. Awards in previous years have ranged from over £200,000 (the Royal Opera House Foundationbeing the main beneficiary) to under £1,000.
Previous grants have included:
Chickenshed Theatre (£2,000)
o Action Adventure (£1,833)
The Mentor Foundation UK (£5,000);
o St. John Ambulance Wiltshire (£500); and
The Royal Aero Club Trust (£10,000). 
The Foundation prefers to build a relationship with supported organisations and foster a collaborative partnership where appropriate. Organisations that cannot be helped financially can be benefited in other ways through mentoring, business planning and networking.
Funding is not available for:
o Organisations that have an outstanding End of Grant Report relating to previous funding from the Foundation.
o Charities in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
o Capital appeals.
o Community Interest Companies (CIC’s).
o Social Enterprises.
o Individuals.
