So far, 2018 has been one worth celebrating for the ALMT. With support from more individuals, co-funding and joining the ALMT in funding projects close to their own hearts, we have been able to reach out to more and more children’s organisations. Grants made have funded educational scholarships, girls’ football and palliative care for children with cancer, among other ground-breaking projects and partnerships.

Supporting projects close to your heart

Co-funding with the ALMT is open to all, no contribution is too small, and every pound makes a genuine difference to the projects supported by the Trust. We support a truly amazing array of small but mighty children’s organisations who apply to the ALMT for grants up to £20k. Co-funding is allowing supporters, like you, to get directly involved and choose where to designate your donation, whether that be for one specific project close to your heart, or for a variety of causes over the year. View the applications and learn more about where your money is ending up.

AfriKids - Ghana - Building brighter futures for families living with disability

The spirit child phenomenon is a belief that some children are sub-human and sent by ancestors to bring bad luck to the family. These children may be at risk of abuse, neglect or infanticide.

The primary goal of this project is to end harmful spirit child practices that lead to child rights violations in 38 communities in Northern Ghana. Every child should enjoy the right to education, healthcare, and protection. Through this project AfriKids will establish four centres and will also work with 20 schools and the Ghana Education Service to screen children for medical conditions and to raise awareness about disabilities among children and staff.

St Ann's and Sneinton Football Club - UK - Soccer School

SAS FC is a voluntary club that prides itself in offering inclusive, local, low cost football provision for children of St Ann's, Sneinton, and Mapperley. Currently SAS FC cater for children aged six upwards and this project will allow children to start playing football at the age of 3.

Under the umbrella charity, EPIC Partners, SAS FC have great links to local schools and other clubs run by the organisation within which to encourage younger siblings and parents to get involved. The Soccer School will begin with taster sessions and a launch day.

Steps Charity - UK - Support for children when facing an amputation

Steps is the national charity working for all those whose lives are affected by childhood lower limb conditions. Based on feedback received from parents of amputee children and health professionals, there is currently a lack of emotional and practical support for families that decide to have an elective amputation, whether this is caused by a congenital condition, trauma or illness.

Working closely with the NHS, this grant will enable Steps to produce a short film to provide parents with all the information they need when making the difficult decision to amputate, the process and rehabilitation, and life with a prosthesis.

World Child Cancer - Bangladesh - Palliative care for children

World Child Cancer improves the diagnosis, treatment and support for children with cancer in the developing world. This project, supported by the ALMT, aims to reduce the burden of suffering children and their families through the development of children's palliative care services at government hospitals in Bangladesh.

Prior to beginning this programme, many children's cancer doctors had little to no awareness of palliative care and children who had no chance of a cure were often subjected to gruelling rounds of futile chemotherapy.

City Pay it Forward - UK - Teaching financial literacy to primary schools

ALMT are supporting City Pay it Forward (CPIF) to achieve their goal to get more schools around the UK teaching financial literacy. With support from teachers and early years education professionals, CPIF has presented to over 10,000 students and the ALMT are working closely with them to achieve accreditation, publishing and distribution of a financial literacy teachers handbook.

The ultimate goal of this partnership is for more and more young people to receive their first lessons in money management, budgeting and making the right life choices to carry with them into their teens and adulthood.



Part of why the ALMT continue to partner with small children's organisations is the close relationships we are able to form with the teams that work tirelessly behind the scenes. The Trust receive annual reports from each and every grant made and sometimes, those reports contain a little something extra.
