Funding to support Young Carers or Care Experienced Young People to access education.

15.03.2022

Grants are available to support schools and registered charities that wish to undertake educational projects with children and young people under the age of 25 in marginalised communities. The British & Foreign Schools Society (BFSS) normally makes grants totalling about £900,000 in any one year.

For UK projects the focus is on projects to improve the educational outcomes and life chances of Young Carers and Children Looked After. Grants of between 30,000 and £100,000 are available (maximum £30,000 per year for multi-year projects).

The funding is available to UK registered charities with an annual income of between £5,000 and £2.5 million, and at least three years of continuous accounts.

UK based and state-funded schools, academies, colleges and other educational establishments regardless of their income size are also eligible providing they can demonstrate a network effect beyond one individual school.
