Registered charities and community interest companies in need of financial aid to support their overall mission or a particular project can apply for a grant from the Hays Travel Foundation. The main focus of the Foundation is to help to create a brighter future in the areas where Hays Travel operates especially for young people who need a bit of help to develop their potential. Projects supported will help young people (up to 25 years) develop in at least one of these areas:
- Prevention of poverty
Grants can range from under £100 to £17,000 with the majority in the range of £1,000 to £10,000.
Previous projects funded include:
- £6,000 to Hat-Trick, an organisation working to bridge the gaps between public services and young people living in deprived areas by providing a variety of sports activities and offering training, qualifications and leadership opportunities for young people to achieve their full potential.
- £5,000 to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in Middlesbrough, a registered Charity providing palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
