The Pixel Fund Reopens for Applications

Children & Young People

04 April 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Registered charities across the United Kingdom can apply for funding for projects and activities related to the mental health and well-being of children and young adults.

The Pixel Fund is offering grants of between £2,500 and £5,000 for small to medium-sized registered UK-based charities to deliver a wide range of projects that improve the mental health and well-being of children and young people aged 26 and under.

The trustees have a strong preference for organisations with an annual income of less than £10 million with priority for organisations with an annual income of less than £2 million. Typically, no single grant will be worth more than 5% of an organisation’s annual income.

There is a multi-stage application process, wherein an organisation must contact The Pixel Fund to discuss their proposal and complete a due diligence form before being invited to complete a full application.

Applications can be submitted at any time. 


How To Apply

Applications can be submitted at any time.

There is a three-step application process:

  • Groups should contact the Pixel Fund with a brief outline of the organisation and why they need funding. All initial enquiries must be submitted via the web contact form at the Pixel Fund website.
  • Groups will then be emailed with a request to fill out a due dilligence form.
  • Successful organisations will then be invited to completed an online application form.

This process typically takes around four months from start to finish.
