The AFMT funds projects that give disadvantaged young people the chance to develop an existing interest in the great outdoors. The AFMT supports projects taking place within the United Kingdom, for reasons of cost-effectiveness.
They prefer that applicants have done some fund-raising and usually support organisations, but if an individual wants to apply, we need a referee.
The AFMT doesn’t fund taster sessions or one-off residential trips and are unlikely to support environmental organisations, unless there is a strong outdoor element to the application. They are unlikely to support foreign trips and don’t support capital projects. Mostly, they are looking for enthusiasm and imagination.
The AFMT does not have an application form. Each application should answer the following questions. Applications should be made via email if possible, but written applications are acceptable.
Application Form: Apply in writing preferably by email answering the questions above. Written applications will be acceptable.
Deadline: Applications can be submitted at any time.
