The Spark Foundation provides grants for young people who are, or were, in care, so they can have the same chances as everyone else.

Through its work, the Foundation is made acutely aware of the difficulties and hurdles such young people face. Often it is clear from the requests received that there is some fundamental issue that is causing hardship.

In order to draw attention to these, the Foundation prepares occasional reports highlighting the issue that can be circulated to the relevant authorities with the aim of helping to resolve the issue and improve the lives of the young people involved.
