The Rowing Foundation is a registered charity. Its purpose is to promote the participation in rowing of young people (those under 18 or still in full time education) and the disabled of all ages.
The Foundation gives grants of £500-£3,000 (up to 50% of the overall cost of the project) to help organisations and clubs involved in on water elements of the sport of Rowing who are individually affiliated to British Rowing (other than via their governing body) and whose requirements may be too small or who may be otherwise ineligible for an approach to the National Lottery or other similar sources of funds.
Funds are limited and statistically the Foundation favours giving grants for equipment that will be used on the water and exclusively for juniors and the disabled of all ages.
The Hull Aid in Sickness Trust is a small local charity whose objective is the award of grants for items or services which will provide a benefit to the health and wellbeing of people who are in need, and who are sick, convalescent, disabled, handicapped or infirm.
The Trust was established to aid only those who reside in the City and County of Kingston upon Hull (that is the area governed by Hull City Council and does not include any residents of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council area whose address bears the HU postcode).
This Trust is set up to help vulnerable people change their lives in the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire, by providing financial support. The aged, disabled and underprivileged are assisted wherever possible, as are children suffering from dyslexia.
The Trust only works with charitable bodies or statutory authorities and we do not provide grants to individuals.
There are two main types of application that they are looking to support:
Firstly, there are applications by charitable or statutory bodies on behalf of individuals or families. The application form must be completed by the charitable organisation/statutory body concerned and not the individual/family. Supporting papers should be attached where necessary.
Secondly, there are applications for projects and work with the groups of people who are outlined in their key objective above.
(Please note that if you are applying from the Hull Area, you must first contact the Hull Advice team on 01482 300303 or e-mail email@example.com)
