Details The Benevolent Fund helps young people at risk of criminal involvement to stay out of trouble and assist in the rehabilitation of offenders, particularly young offenders both in prison and after release. The Fund prefers to help new projects in the early stages and, in particular, innovatory projects which could act as a model for similar work elsewhere. The priorities of the fund are to help 1. Helping disadvantaged young people and 2. Offenders and ex-offenders, particularly those under 30 years of age. Small organisations and charities that offer direct services are preferred.
