The Little Beam Foundation offers grants to Children and Young Adults in support of their Mental Health and Wellbeing. These grants may be utilised for things like sports equipment, a musical instrument, a health assessment, art classes and more.

Prior to commencing the process, please ensure that you have completed your own research on the type of support required. We do not advise or assess individuals and rely on your honest completion of the process.

Here are some ideas that you might consider when applying:

3. Support to participate in a sports event or buy sporting equipment
4. Support to fund art supplies or to attend an art class

6. Support for SEN or additional educational needs


The application is for a single child or workshop/project.

We will not cover the cost of siblings/friends.

The application will not cover travel, accommodation or food of any child/parent/guardian.

In the event of your grant being successful, we will only accept one application per child per year.

The usual amount for a successful grant application is UP TO £250.

We will contact the provider you stipulate in your application and, in the majority of cases, pay them directly for the item requested.
