The Volant 
Charitable Trust


Foundation Scotland delivers The Volant Charitable Trust Open Grants programme.

Foundation Scotland manages the entire application process for this grant-making programme and all enquiries should be made using the form below.


The Volant Trust’s aim is to support women, children and young people who are at risk and facing social deprivation. 


The Volant Trust furthers its aim by supporting Scottish charities and projects, whether national or community-based, which help alleviate social deprivation, particularly supporting women, children and young people at risk. Projects must demonstrate a strong focus on supporting women and children affected by hardship or disadvantage and on tackling the issues they face in order to make a lasting difference to their lives and life chances.


The Volant Trust will not support:

  • Individuals

  • Projects which do not benefit people in Scotland 

  • General fundraising appeals or activities

  • Contributions to major capital projects.

  • Groups who will then distribute the funds as grants or bursaries 

  • The repayment of loans or payment of debts

  • Retrospective funding i.e. costs already incurred/activities already taken place

  • Trips abroad 

  • Purchase of second hand vehicles



The fund is now closed and will re-open in 2019.
