Apply For Funding

The George Crawford Legacy Trust is here to help young people of all abilities and from every background. If you have the drive and determination to go further and achieve a better outcome for yourself, we would love to hear for you to apply for funding.

George had no boundaries and went out of his way to include everyone in his happy world.

We want to make your world happy!

We want to help as many young people as we can realise their dreams.

We know that having put in your application, you don’t want to be waiting for months to know if you’ve been successful or not.

Our Trustees get together once a quarter to read through all the inspiring applications that have come in. They then decide which ones match our ethos and how the Trust can best help them.

Who can apply for funding from the Trust?

Young people of all physical and mental abilities, from all walks of life, who would like to reach their full potential can apply.

  • What you envisage spending the money on and what, if any, contribution you can make yourself.
