Charities working with disadvantaged young people aged 13 or below can apply for funding of up to £5,000 from the Toy Trust.
Founded by the British Toy and Hobby Association, the Toy Trust- the industry’s charity- exists to raise money predominantly from the toy industry, its suppliers and friends and distributes the money raised to charities helping disadvantaged and disabled children within the UK and abroad.
Funding is available towards projects that help disadvantaged children and their families to alleviate suffering, support children through awful experiences, encourage achievement through adversity, purchase vital equipment, provide care, bolster existing initiatives, initiate brand new projects and satisfy basic needs.
To be eligible the charity accounts must have unrestricted net assets of not more than £200,000 or of less than one year’s income. Applications can be submitted at any time.
