About Alec Dickson Trust

The Alec Dickson Trust supports young people in the UK who want to use volunteering or community service to do brilliant things in their communities.

The Alec Dickson Trust supports young people (under 30) in the UK who want to use volunteering or community service to set up something new in their community.

The Trust provide grants of up to £500 to individuals or groups of young people aged 30 or under, to help them put their ideas into action and run projects that benefit the lives of others – particularly the most marginalised and disadvantaged.

When they assess projects, they are looking for projects which:

Volunteering

We support projects that support and encourage youth volunteering. We particularly like to fund projects that involve lots of volunteers, and/or encourage these young people to stay engaged as volunteers in the long term.

Need

We support young people who run projects that benefit disadvantaged communities and individuals. We're looking for projects that identify a specific need, and propose to carry out activities that will clearly help to address this need. Often it's about young volunteers helping to give others the opportunity to engage in activities, have a voice, and meet people that they otherwise would not have been able to.

Innovation

Ultimately we're looking for youth volunteering projects that help to improve communities, but if the project is new and exciting then even better! We particularly like to fund volunteer initiatives that are innovative and try to do things a bit differently, such as using social media creatively or using existing resources in new ways.
