Trusts and Foundations

Charitable Trusts and Foundations are a primary source of Trust income. They play a vital role in more young people rebuilding their confidence after cancer.

2020 update: Information for our funders and partners

We have produced a detailed Q&A for our funders and partners to explain our position on the remainder of 2020 and looking ahead to 2021. You can download that here - Q&A FOR FUNDERS AND PARTNERS

The Trust receives no government or statutory funding. We rely wholly on donations and fundraising activities to continue making a life-changing difference to young people in recovery from cancer.

We believe building strong lasting relationships with our funding partners achieves the best outcomes for all – the young people, the funder and the Trust. Through developing a funding model that promotes sustainable investment, we can plan with confidence while showing greater ambition in the range and reach of our activities.

We have been able to plot a strong strategic course that has laid foundations for further growth for years to come.

If you are a Charitable Trust or Foundation interested in working with us, or if you could make an introduction to someone who sits on the Board of one of the UK’s 10,000 Trusts and Foundations, we would love to hear from you.

Working together

Through our partnerships with more than 44 Charitable Trusts and Foundations (2019), we have received grants to meet both the costs of specific voyages or activities, as laid down in the terms of the grant.

We have also enjoyed access to unrestricted regular funding to help us achieve outcomes determined by the Trust with the funders’ agreement.

There is still much to do and we remain highly ambitious for our young people.

We value the importance of sharing the difference such funding makes, and ensure we work with our grant makers to provide tailored updates and reports as desired.

Liam's Story

“We created a sort of friendship where you can talk quite freely about everything, which I wouldn’t have done three or four weeks earlier.”

Only after blacking out and having a cardiac event did Liam discover he had a pituitary tumour. He came on a trip following two surgeries and five weeks of radiotherapy, with another surgery to come. By the end of the week he felt more optimistic and reenergised.
