Financial assistance for youth charities in Cornwall

At the West Cornwall Youth Trust we subscribe to the notion that life is for living. We believe that young people who take part in challenging and stretching experiences come out the other side with invaluable life lessons which help as they continue on the path to adulthood.

We also recognise such activities are often expensive because of the costs associated with travel, equipment or any other number of factors. Consequently, not every family can pay for the kind of activity which their children may like to take part in.

That’s where the West Cornwall Youth Trust comes in. We established the trust in 2010 to provide support to deserving young people in our area with a view to enabling them to undertake worthwhile activities that they might otherwise not be able to afford.

The primary way in which we do that is by offering financial assistance 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 Isles of Scilly.

The young people we help tend to be between the approximate ages of 10 and 21 and may be:

  • Underprivileged
  • Seriously financially constrained
  • Socially disadvantaged
  • Disabled

Other categories are also considered on a case-by-case basis at the Trustees’ discretion.
