The True Colours Trust - For projects that work with disabled children and their families

The Trustees are committed to supporting a large number of excellent local organisations and projects that work with disabled children and their families on a daily basis. This is done through the Trust’s small grants programme. It provides grants of up to £10,000 to help smaller organisations develop and deliver programmes for children, their siblings and families.

The Trustees are particularly keen to support:

  • Hydrotherapy pools

  • Multi-sensory rooms

  • Mini buses

  • Sibling projects

  • Bereavement support

  • Specialised play equipment / access to play and leisure

  • Family support / parent-led peer support

Please note the following:

  • Trustees are keen to make the grant programme available to as many organisations as possible; it is therefore unlikely that they will fund organisations in consecutive years.

  • The Trustees are unlikely to fund the following:  condition specific organisations; residential play schemes; residential special schools; and free schools.  Also, organisations whose annual income exceeds £300,000 are unlikely to be considered.

  • Organisations wishing to apply must adhere to the Trust’s safeguarding policy.
