Grants are available to registered charities for disability, social welfare inner city community projects, penal reform, and respite for carers in England and Wales.
A substantial proportion of the total funds available are allocated in the form of repeat grants for projects previously supported. The amount available for supporting new projects is, therefore, limited.
Applications can be made at any time.The charity’s objects are particularly focused on the following:
- The Alchemist Scheme, which receives about half of the available funding.
- Disability, especially mobility, access, help lines and communications.
- Social welfare, including inner city community projects, disaffected youth, family mediation, homelessness.
- Respite for carers.
- Penal reform, including work with prisoners, especially young prisoners, and their families.
The Foundation does not maintain a website or an email address so pplicants should write to the Alchemy Foundation for information on how to apply.
