What We Do

The Breadsticks Foundation helps enable the provision of quality healthcare and education to marginalised and vulnerable people. We do this by providing grants to charities that attempt to remove barriers to well-being and give support to those trying to achieve their potential. The trustees have a particular interest in enabling good mental health and supporting young people.

We aim to build close, long-term partnerships with the organisations we support. Where possible, we aim to provide partner organisations with long-term core funding, but will also provide project-related grants. Grant sizes vary.

The countries in which the Foundation currently works are the United Kingdom, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, and India.

The Foundation will not sponsor individuals or fund animals, medical research or capital and building projects. It will not fund faith-based programmes unless they work with beneficiaries from all faiths and none.

We participate closely in monitoring and evaluation with our partners and, depending on circumstances, require half-yearly or annual progress reports on each grant. In assessing a grant application, we will analyse each applicant’s financial reports and accounts, and will conduct phone and face-to-face interviews.
