There are significant numbers of young disadvantaged people in the area who have often been brought up in care and are not able to get the help needed to support them into training and the workplace. When they are 19 years old, Government funding is virtually non-existent and many of these young people are finding themselves on the scrapheap before they have even begun their working lives.

We wish to address this by giving opportunities for disadvantaged young people to have the appropriate training and support so that they can eventually take care of themselves both personally and financially. We have established an excellent relationship with Young Devon who would very much like to work with us and are able to provide significant opportunities to help individual young people get on the right track for the rest of their lives. Beneficiaries will have resided within 25 miles of Exeter for at least the last 3 years and be aged between 16 & 25.

The Incorporation’s goal this year (2016 / 2017) is to raise a further £20,000 on the basis that we would really like to continue to increase the difference we make with our giving.

Our longer term aim is to work to significantly increase the present endowment so that future awards, grants and allowances can be made from the income generated. We hope this can be achieved by attracting donations, legacies and income from capital investment.

You can assist us financially to further these aims by: 

donating by standing order, bank transfer, online debit/credit card, or by cheque ►

For larger donations or legacies, please contact the Clerk for a confidential and formal discussion.

Because of our restricted funds any grant will be limited and likely to be less than a £1000. We are particularly looking to provide help to enter into or maintain employment.

All applications will be dealt with by Young Devon so please contact them for further information and to apply.
