Trusts, Foundations and Lottery

We engage with a number of grant-making supporters, who have allowed us to grow and have helped us to transform the lives of hundreds of young disabled people and children in the local areas. We continue to be grateful for their invaluable support.

If you’re from a charitable trust or foundation and would be interested in supporting Beams, please get in touch.

We are happy to show you first hand the work that we do here at Beams. We also have some urgent funding priorities at present and would love to hear from you.

Statutory funding

Grants from statutory agencies and commissioned work including the Department for Education, Local Authorities and the Department of Health have enabled Beams to invest in and grow our support services. The statutory support has helped us to support young people to increase their life skills.


The Big Lottery Fund through their reaching communities programme is a valued partner of Beams funding our Family Advice Team and our inclusive play schemes.


Beams have launched an appeal to fund a new garden at our respite unit, Dragon’s Retreat.

Our current garden is well used and in desperate need of repair, the wheelchair swing has broken and parts of the garden are out of action. Click HERE to find out how you can get involved and help raise funds.
