The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People (DMTFYP), formerly known as the Hilton in the Community Foundation, is a registered charity in England, Wales and Scotland. Its central grants focus on providing equipment, training and support to young people. Generally the Foundation's central grants do not make awards of more than £30,000 a year.

The Foundation funds projects that help disadvantaged children and young people under 25 with the overall aim of enhancing access to formal and informal education and ensuring they receive appropriate health interventions. It considers applications focusing on one of four groups:

  • Children and young people with disabilities.
  • Children and young people in need of hospital care.
  • Children and young people who are homeless or in care.
  • Children and young people in need of hospice and palliative care.

For full guidelines and eligibility criteria please refer to the website. 

Quarterly deadline rounds have now been introduced due to high demand for limited grants. 

The first deadline for applications for 2019 is 5 February 2019.

Applications should be sent by email.
