What is Co-Funding?

Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

Ben’s House provides short term accommodation close to the Children’s Cancer Unit at the Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, for children undergoing cancer treatment and their families. Treatment cycles are gruelling and are often more than a week long. Ben’s House eliminates the need to travel daily and also ensures that the whole family can remain together during this extremely difficult time.


The ALMT has provided the funds to fully furnish and equip Ben’s House making it a real home from home. At the end of each difficult day, families can recharge and most importantly spend time together.
