The Robert Horne Employee Fund

Deadline: Rolling programme
Location: UK & Commonwealth
Grant Amount: £5,000
Project Type: Individual

At the time the Robert Horne Group became a public company in March 1984, the Horne family established a charitable trust which became known as The Horne Foundation. The aims of the trust are focussed on education and over the years it has funded multiple educational and artistic projects in Northamptonshire and several hundred student bursaries supporting quality education.


The Horne Foundation in partnership with Northamptonshire Community Foundation have established The Robert Horne Employee Fund.  This fund aims to provide a level of support for any former employee of the Robert Horne Group who may be experiencing financial hardship and especially during the current challenging financial climate for local residents.


To apply to the fund, applicants must: 

  • Be a former employee or spouse of a former employee within the Robert Horne Group. 
  • Complete an application form, detailing why you need the grant. 

Supporting documents 

  • Provide proof that you have been employed by the relevant company or are a spouse of a former employee.  Documents which prove this might include a P60, historic pay slips, pension documents, letters of appointment or similar. 
  • Please also include a copy of a recent bank statement outlining any current accounts or savings you may have. This will be used to assess your financial need and make a judgement on your eligibility to access funding through the Robert Horne Employee Fund.

To apply to this fund, please download an application form and, once completed, send this to 

This is a rolling programme meaning you can apply at any time, applications will be reviewed every two weeks.
