Themed funding

‘Themed funding’ to meet an ambitious, specific outcome is a new way of funding for the Trust. The requirements and details of each fund will differ and can usually be spent on core and project costs to achieve the outcomes of the funding round. 


Please see below for details of current and past themed funding projects:

A one-year funding opportunity to provide a Short Breaks project for disabled children and young people and their parent-carers in Gloucestershire. Funding was awarded to 6 local organisations.
