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.

Guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner pledged their support to fund one hour of specialist therapy for a disabled child in the UK. Every year, Footsteps Foundation helps over 100 children by funding life-changing physiotherapy. Unique in the UK, the Footsteps centre uses specialist equipment to help disabled children build up their strength and mobility.
