The Andy Fanshawe Memorial Trust exists to fund projects that allow disadvantaged young people in the UK to take up opportunities to develop an existing interest in the great outdoors and outdoor activities.
No minimum and maximum levels of support are outlined by the Trust. Instead, each project will be judged and awarded on merit.
Each year the Trust gives eight to twelve grants averaging £400 each.
