The Rayne Foundation will fund charities in the UK working in the fields of arts, health and wellbeing, education in its widest sense, and those that cover social issues, to support activities that bring clear and direct benefits to vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
Grants can range from £10,000 to £20,000 per year for up to three years.
The focus is to connect communities, build bridges between marginalised groups and mainstream society, and to enable individuals to reach their full potential. Within these broad criteria, the foundation has a number of areas of special interest:
- Young people’s improved mental health.
- Arts as a tool to achieve social change.
- Improved quality of life for carers and for older people.
