The Worval Foundation aims to provide opportunities for young disadvantaged people, primarily aged between 10-15 years of age but not exclusively, who are on the edge of exclusion from school or are finding it hard to cope, possibly due to an illness, learning difficulties or life circumstances. This fund wishes to make a life changing impact on the young people. The grant award will be personalised to cater for the needs of the young person; we have therefore not specified what can and cannot be supported, this will be at the discretion of the fund holder.

Successful applicants should be able to demonstrate improvements against at least one of the following:
• Improved social isolation
• Improved health and wellbeing
• Improved resilience/coping mechanisms
• Improve life skills
• Improved opportunities

Examples of what could be supported range from:

A young person on the edge of school exclusion seeking alternative education to regain their confidence, improve opportunities and life skills.

A young person struggling with education due to a potential learning disability and requires support to establish diagnosis. A diagnosis would improve the health and wellbeing of the individual as well as improving their opportunities.

A young person struggling with a bereavement seeking additional support to improve their health and wellbeing.

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.
