Grant boost to help under 16s in difficulties reach their potential

New the7stars foundation has partnered with family law firm Coram Chambers to offer grants to challenged under 16-year-olds.

the7stars foundation was established in November last year by media agency the7stars, and offers small grants to help under 16-year-olds who are facing difficulties achieve their potential.

The main areas prioritised for are: homelessness, addiction, abuse, and child carers.

Working with Coram Chambers, the foundation offers grants of between £200 and £2500 for projects that could make a discernible difference to a young person’s life, such as accommodation assistance, support with educational equipment or training, music or art courses, private therapeutic treatment or counselling, or funding for organised activities and family trips. Funds will be made out directly to the service provider for successful applications.

Funding applications are invited from lawyers involved in children cases, social workers or guardians, and these applications will be presented to the trustees of the7stars foundation four times a year, at meetings in March, June, September and December. They can be sent to foundation director Alexandra Taliadoros at

Taliadoros said:

“the7stars foundation is proud to be able to support young people suffering abuse, addiction, homelessness – or those in the role of a young carer, in this direct and impactful way, made possible through our  partnership with Coram Chambers. We urge anyone working in the social services space to please be in touch. Through working together in this manner, we hope to help those young people most in need.”
