Grant Application Process


The SpeedoMick Foundation’s objectives, through the provision of grants, is to work with groups directly supporting economically disadvantaged people. 

The Foundation began grant funding small, grass roots charities and community groups during the covid 19 pandemic when the demands on their services were stretched to capacity and they were often unable to fundraise.

So far we have awarded 128 grants with a combined total of over £282k. 

We are not currently accepting any new applications but if you have any questions about this or anything else please get in touch with Rachel on our contact page.


Priorities for Support

The number of projects which can be supported is limited. The initial priorities for funding has been to those charities whose projects include:

  • Working with those who are homeless
  • Ex offender rehabilitation or educational support
  • General relief for people in need
  • The advancement of education
