Funding News: Up To £10,000 Available to Projects Working With Disadvantaged Children

With the closing date just over a week away, there is still time to apply for a grant of up to £10,000 from the Ironmongers’ Company for projects that provide opportunities to disadvantaged children and young people to fulfil their potential.

Grants are only given to registered charities. Projects must meet all of the following criteria:

  • For children and young people under the age of 25 who are disadvantaged

  • Consist of educational activities that develop learning, motivation and skills

  • Have clear aims and objectives to be met within a planned timescale

  • Are within the UK

The Company is looking for projects that deliver clearly defined educational benefits to a specific group of children or young people. Items of equipment will be considered only where a full explanation is given of how they will support this activity.

The Company is particularly interested in enabling primary age children to develop a strong foundation for the future. Projects could, for example, support special educational needs, address behavioural problems or promote citizenship, parenting or life skills. Preference will be given to projects piloting new approaches where the outcomes will be disseminated to a wider audience.

Next deadline for applications is Wed 31st July. To find out more visit: https://www.ironmongers.org/charity_organisations.htm
