Diana Memorial Fund releases £1.5 million in grants

Diana Memorial Fund releases £1.5 million in grants

Grants of nearly £1.5 million, previously on hold during the legal dispute, have now been made by The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.

The grants had been agreed in principle in 2003, before the Fund’s assets were frozen as a result of a legal dispute, now ended, and have now been updated, reassessed and approved for release.

The grants help disadvantaged people in the UK and overseas. In the UK the Fund supports work with young people who find the transition to adulthood especially difficult, including, in this round, three new grants that will address the health and social welfare of young refugees and asylum seekers.

The Fund’s international grants programme aids work for the creation of safe and viable communities in post-conflict countries.
