Rolls Royce Fund 2018

The Foundation Derbyshire Rolls-Royce 2018 Fund is now open for bids until early March  

Every year the Foundation works alongside Rolls-Royce to develop a grant theme, responding to local needs, topics and concerns. For 2018 the theme will be:

Children and the Great Outdoors

Supporting child mental & physical health in our most disadvantaged communities

Last year the Foundation Derbyshire Rolls-Royce Fund selected the theme of Mental Health and Young People. This allowed them to award three local charities who went on to offer direct counselling services to over 125 children and young people. 

This 2018 theme builds on that work by taking a step back and looking at part of the prevention agenda, using some of the simplest, effective ways to build up mental health resilience in children throughout Derby and Derbyshire.

The Fund will harness the power of existing charities, community groups and voluntary groups already working with disadvantaged and vulnerable families. The Fund will offer an investment for projects, which will educate around the importance of green exercise and outdoor play and foster a love of the great outdoors.

A fund of £10,000 has been set aside to fund projects here in Derby and Derbyshire that can make a positive impact on local lives.
