Quadstar Award – Quadstar Foundation

The Quadstar award will provide grants and mentoring to innovative and dynamic charities and social enterprise projects that focus on helping children and young people thrive.

Through grants of up to £10,000 the Foundation supports a wide range of ideas that help children and young people in their development and well-being. They particularly focus on activities that support children and young people’s happiness and confidence as an antidote to modern pressures and to support their opportunities and aspirations through activities such as sport, creative arts and outdoor adventures.

Projects supported should be working towards one or more of the following outcomes:

  • Improving children and young people’s emotional resilience and mental well-being
  • Increasing children and young people’s opportunities
  • Empowering children and young people to become more confident and pursue their aspirations.

Quadstar Foundation expect successful applicants to be proactive in identifying areas they require support with, taking part in mentoring and networking events. Beyond the life of the grant it is anticipated successful applicants will have an on-going relationship with the foundation to enable subsequent grant holders to benefit from their skills and experience.

That’s the heart of the quadstar foundation, a charity launched in 2017 to provide seed grants and mentoring to young, innovative and dynamic charities and social enterprise projects that focus on helping children and young people thrive.

Quadstar is collaborative, open to a wide range of ideas that help children and young people in their development and well-being. We particularly welcome initiatives that support children and young people through activities such as sport, creative arts and outdoor adventures as an antidote to modern pressures. The aim is to grow their confidence to encourage children and young people to pursue and achieve their aspirations.

Through partnering with innovative, new projects we provide the funding, advice and mentoring to enable ideas to thrive.

Above all the foundation focuses on fun for the children and young people we support.
