The Holywood Trust is a charitable organisation, founded in 1979, which aims to help young people aged 15 – 25 years old across Dumfries & Galloway. It gives grants to individuals and organisations, creating opportunities for young people in the region.
WHAT WE DO
We want to help young people throughout Dumfries & Galloway fulfil their potential in cultural, educational and social aspects of their lives. We do this by providing financial grants to individual young people, and organisations which support or provide opportunities for young people in the region.
The Trust is particularly interested in:
– Providing opportunities for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people throughout the region.
– Encouraging talented young people in Dumfries & Galloway.
– Helping improve sports and cultural opportunities across the region.
We focus primarily on young people aged 15 – 25 years. However we will occasionally consider supporting vulnerable younger children for preventative measures in relation to health or social disadvantage, or if the activities are particularly inspirational.
