Fletchers Foundation is a charitable foundation launched by Fletchers Group, a trading name of Fletchers Solicitors.
The Foundation was born in 2022, out of Fletchers Group’s aim to be a responsible business.
Fletchers has been providing specialist legal services to seriously injured people since the 1980s and are one of the country’s leading specialist serious injury law firms.
The Foundation was set up because of a long-standing desire to provide more direct help and support to people who have suffered serious injuries or illnesses but who do not have the benefit of a legal claim to pursue.
We provide this support through the use of financial grants that can be used for aids and equipment, rehabilitation treatment, or a whole host of wider uses that will help individuals with their recovery or quality of life.
Our objective is to enable as many people as possible to thrive following a life-changing injury.
Fletchers Foundation will only donate funds within the U.K.
If you or someone you care for meets the eligibility criteria, please complete the below application form to apply for a grant from Fletchers Foundation.
If you are applying for funding to support an individual and/or their family, please complete the Individual application form which can be downloaded from our website.
If service users of your organisation are living with the long-term effects of serious personal injury, medical negligence or due to illness (born with or acquired), you may qualify for support from Fletchers Foundation, and we’d love to hear from you.
You are a local community group, registered charity, or school working with individuals and their family with the long-term effects of serious personal injury, medical negligence, or illness.

The project, group, or event that the local community group, registered charity, or school is applying for, is eligible for public funding.

The local community group, registered charity, or school is financially able to support themselves.
The grant is going to promote/involve any religious or political aspects.
The grant is going to be paid into a non-affiliated bank.
The grant will pay for the local community group, registered charity, or school’s ‘business as usual’ activity or to replace lost income, rather than go towards the joint project.
Local community groups with an annual income of less than £50,000 can apply up to £10,000.
Registered charities, schools, and community groups with an annual income of more than £50,000 will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
We will only support a local community group, charity or school once every 12 months.
Please note there isn’t a limit on how many times a local community group, registered charity, or school can signpost their services users to the foundation in a 12-month period. We will only support that individual once in a 12-month period, but there is no limit in how many individuals come from that local community group, registered charity, or school (within reason).

Applications will only be considered upon completion and submission of the above form. Further information may be required in considering your application.
All successful applicants will be contacted directly, using the details provided in the form, however, due to the large number of applications we receive it will not be possible to inform all applicants who are unsuccessful.
Please note that the Trustee Board will follow a robust and transparent assessment process and their decision is final.
Therefore, it is important that all applicants provide up-to-date and relevant information regarding their project, why they wish to be awarded the grant, what they will do with the funding received and how it will benefit recipients in the future.
