What We Do

What We Do.

The Utley Foundation makes grants across diverse areas of interest to the trustees. It is envisaged that these areas will reduce into a greater focus over time. For now the areas of interest of the trustees include:

  • Health - improving the physical and mental health of vulnerable people, particularly children and people living with dementia.
  • Vulnerable children and premature babies – improving life chances of vulnerable children and the families that care for them in the UK and in less developed countries.
  • Education – be it scholarships for talented but under-resourced individuals or trying to improve general levels of education both in the UK and in less developed countries.
  • Using Music as a catalyst for both wellbeing and to generate funds to support a number of causes. A major area of focus thus far has been exploring the benefits of music for disabled children and people living with dementia.

The Utley Foundation does not support unsolicited applications for funding.
