The Worval Foundation aims to provide opportunities for young, disadvantaged people to change the trajectory of their lives.  The benefit should be significant and long-term. The aim is to make the biggest possible difference with each £1 spent and therefore we favour those in an age range from 9 to 16 but we will consider children outside that age range if the change will be marked and self-sustaining.

We are not prescriptive about the intervention. We are more concerned about the outcome. It should set a young person in a new and better path. This can be through activity, mentoring or counselling or anything which will help them gain self confidence and see the world in a new way.

An application for a grant must be made by an organisation for the benefit of any, young person resident in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, who requires support.
