How we operate

Wave ProjectWest Cornwall Youth Trust welcomes grant applications from any charitable organisation which meets our criteria. We tend to favour organisations that offer young people in our area educational or adventurous activities which provide an element of challenge. Whilst we do offer grants to fulfil specific needs, we don’t usually offer help with an organisation’s general running or core funding costs.

We hold quarterly Trust meetings, when grant applications will generally be considered, as long as we have received all the information which we require. We will communicate our decision soon thereafter. Grants are normally given to charitable organisations rather than individuals directly.

It is also important to us that we ensure our grants make the positive difference we aim for. For that reason we require feedback from each organisation we help in order to ascertain how successful – or otherwise – our grants have been in helping to achieve both the organisation’s aims and our own.
