The Pawprint Trust has been privately established by Jamie and Charlotte along with other trustees with an interest in supporting young members of the community. We hope that, as beneficiaries, these young people will be involved in more adventurous activities and increased participation at a local or international level. The Pawprint Trust is not directly affiliated with The Scout Association or Girlguiding.
Do you have a project that needs some extra funds? A young person planning an international trip but stuck with their fundraising? Then we have the help that you need! Our aim is to support young people with life changing adventures, increasing involvement in adventurous activities and participation in events both at a local or international level. For more information see the questions below, download the application pack or contact us.

Congratulations to the receivers of our 2021 grants!
It’s been a fantastic year yet again, with applications for projects abroad and some more local to home. With the updated application form and grants opened up to all young people of the UK, the breadth of applications has been amazing. It’s always such a difficult process but we have thoroughly enjoyed reading every application and seeing what adventures the young people of the UK are getting up to.
A huge congratulations to the young people below whose applications have been awarded a grant. All receivers have been notified.
