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.

The ALMT is supporting this innovative and much needed service bringing together children and young people from the care system together. The holiday camps focus on supporting young people to develop strong family bonds before, during and after the camps.

 

Siblings Together provides guidance, structure, consistency, and opportunities which children and young people should receive within a family but often lose when in the care system. The camps include art therapy, performance, and creativity as well as high energy activities such as rock climbing and swimming. A photographer also takes pictures for the young people, as research has shown that children in care have very few photographs of themselves in a family context. Outcomes for the young people include increased contact, improved emotional wellbeing and more secure family bonds. ALMT’s trustees believe this project provides a unique and much needed service.
