The quadstar foundation provides seed grants and mentoring to innovative and dynamic charities and social enterprise projects that focus on helping children and young people thrive. We also provide grants to enable individual children and young people in Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex and Berkshire to obtain specialist equipment, technologies or therapy to help them overcome barriers and take part in fun activities and aspire.

We also aim to collaborate with those working in special areas of interest and would welcome contact from organisations and individuals working to:

  • address self-harm among young people locally through approaches such as peer support.
  • support children and young people affected by parental separation or divorce, with a particular focus on enabling children to retain positive contact with both parents. We are particularly interested in innovative solutions to reach affected young people, such as through the use of technology.

If you are working in one of these areas of interest, please contact us or to stay up to date with our latest grant news please join our mailing list.
