Funder of the Week
This week our funder is The Tudor Trust
“The Tudor Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust. We fund a wide range of organisations working to support positive changes in people’s lives and in their communities around the UK. We don’t have specific funding programmes designed to advance any particular agenda as we think that the groups we support are best placed to identify problems and develop solutions!”
Tudor Trust wants to support organisations which
- Address Marginalisation
- Make a Difference
- Display Positive Organisational Characteristics
Before applying check their guidelines and the list of those excluded from applying.
See who they have recently offered funding to.
Tudor Trust operates a 2 stage application process . This gives them the opportunity to look over your project idea and how you work with your community. They will then decide if your application moves onto stage 2 where you will complete a more detailed application form.
On Thursday 28 January 2021 10.30am to 12.00pm we have a funding officer from the Tudor Trust attending a funding spotlight.

Scotland on Mars
In acknowledgement of how difficult it currently is for organisations, the Scotland on Mars project has been adapted slightly:
(i) Guided facilitation from a teacher or staff member is no longer needed. Young people can play the game entirely remotely in their own time (although if interested, we can prepare a simple lesson plan e.g. PSE or Modern Studies classes).
(ii) Game play will start later than planned (Feb 2021), and run longer (March 2021). This is intended to be responsive to the additional demands and pressures staff and young people will be experiencing at this time (e.g. additional restrictions, getting settled with remote learning etc.).
