The Horner Foundation




Northamptonshire Community Foundation is pleased to help promote the launch of The Horner Foundation Awards for the towns of Corby and Kettering, Northamptonshire 2022-24.



Strategy:  The intention of this funding stream is to focus work in the Towns of Corby and Kettering in order to improve outcomes for young people and young mums. Existing programs and services already working in these towns, as well as other organizations looking to expand their reach into these under-resourced regions are encouraged to apply. Projects should be well rooted in community need, with an emphasis on service user feedback informing and refining the service models. It is the hope, through this strategic funding, that Corby & Kettering will be models of sexual health & antenatal education deeply rooted in the community. If you match the criteria listed below, we encourage you to submit a letter of intent (LOI). More information about the LOI and application process can be found at: 

Types of programs that should apply:

  • Charitable organizations working with underserved youth aged 11-25

  • Organizations working in the Towns of Corby & Kettering, Northamptonshire

    • Organizations already working in these cities, or wishing to expand services into Corby and/or Kettering

  • All successful grants will be required to monitor outcomes in a specific way, so that data can be compared for the region

Two Funding Focuses: 

  1. Sexual Health & Education for Young People
  2. Health, Education & Social Supports for Young Mums

Example projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Prevention: Pregnancy education, sexual education
