Let June Make A Difference exists to enhance the lives of children and young people who live or study in North Kirklees and are aged up to 17 at the start of the academic year. We will also consider applications from certain specialist schools that serve the whole of Kirklees.


Our aim is to help children who are referred to us as a result of financial difficulties, illness or other challenging circumstances. We will provide one-off grants in whole or in part towards the purchase of a specific item.


Examples of our grants include school or college supplies, medical equipment or life-enhancing adventures. Sometimes we will make a contribution to a major item of expenditure in conjunction with other like-minded organisations.



The starting point in our process is the completion by a third party professional of our Application Form. We will not accept applications directly from the family of the child or young person. The Form can be sent to us as an attachment to an e-mail or by post to our address. It contains details of the required expenditure, background information on the family's circumstances (including their financial position unless the child attracts the Pupil Premium) and an explanation of the difference our award will make to the young person. This is a key part of our approval process. 

We cannot provide assistance towards existing debt repayments, recurring expenses such as rent and utility bills, white goods or fixtures and fittings. We will consider grants of all sizes although it is unlikely that an individual award will be greater than £500.

The Trustees meet formally on a bi-monthly basis. The meeting dates for 2022 are as follows:

04 March 2022

06 May 2022

08 July 2022

09 September 2022

11 November 2022

Applications are reviewed when they arrive and we aim to reach a decision, once we have all the information we need, within two weeks.
