Special Projects

Our Special Projects fund was established to extend the reach of the Award, particularly to young people considered to be at risk or marginalised in society. 

A small group of generous supporters – the International Special Projects (ISP) – funds initiatives and partnerships that help to deliver the Award to these young people. Every project is subject to careful appraisal before money is granted, as well as six-monthly reports and evaluation visits.

Our latest Special Projects event in London was attended by three Award speakers who spoke about how the Award had transformed their lives. Read more about the event here.
