Kelly Family Charitable Trust

The Kelly Family Charitable Trust was set up in 2004 as a grant-giving body. It provides grants to local and regional charities that are working to make a difference to the lives of local people across the UK.

The funding is for charities whose activities involve all or most family members in initiatives that support and encourage the family to work as a cohesive unit in tackling problems that face one or more of its members. The overall objective is to reinforce the potential benefit and support that family members as a unit can give to each other.

The Trust actively encourages applications from relatively new organisations to help them become established.

The Trust prefers to support charities whose income is below £500,000; however, larger charities with pioneering pilot projects will be considered.

The Trust offers both capital and revenue grants.

The funding is for charities whose activities involve all or most family members in initiatives that support and encourage the family to work as a cohesive unit in tackling problems that face one or more of its members. The overall objective is to reinforce the potential benefit and support that family members as a unit can give to each other.

The three principal areas that the charity wishes to support are:

- Interventions that support families and help them in ways that prevent the fracture of the family unit, eg relationship counseling, mediation.
- Families where sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drugs abuse threaten the integrity of the family unit.
- Prisoners and, in particular, their families, during and after the period of imprisonment.

Applications are also considered for core funding from relatively new organisations seeking to become established.
