The AFMT funds projects that give disadvantaged young people the chance to develop an existing interest in the great outdoors. The AFMT doesn’t fund taster sessions or one-off residential trips and they prefer that applicants have done some fund-raising. They are unlikely to support foreign trips or capital projects. Previous grants include:

• A grant to take 12 young people from a cycling project in Bristol on a mountain biking trip to the Forest of Dean
• Money for an initiative by Carlisle firefighters to take ‘last-chance’ teenagers on a climbing and personal development course
• Financial support for a young man with ASD to develop his interest in climbing.
Grants are usually in the region of £300-500.
