We recognise that activities are often expensive because of the costs associated with travel, equipment or a number of other factors. Consequently, not every family can pay for the kind of activity which their children may enjoy taking part in.
The primary way in which we achieve this is by offering financial assistance or grants to charitable organisations who can, in turn, help young people in West Cornwall – generally those who live west of an imaginary line between St Austell and Newquay, including the Clay District and the Isles of Scilly.
We specifically aim to help young people between the ages of 10 and 21, who may be:
- Seriously financially constrained
- Socially disadvantaged
Other categories are also considered on a case-by-case basis at the Trustees’ discretion.
NEXT APPLICATION CLOSING DATE – THURSDAY 6th DECEMBER 2017 with a decision anticipated by THE THIRD WEEK IN JANUARY 2018.
Please note that the WCYT office will be temporarily closed from 7th December 2017 until 9th January 2018. Please do not phone the WCYT mobile number during this time as you MAY INCUR INTERNATIONAL CALL CHARGES. Email contact should be available.
