Grants to organisations

Sir Walter St John’s Educational Charity makes grants to promote the education and training of children and young people under the age of 25 who live in the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth and who are in need of financial assistance. Preference is given to supporting those who live in the Battersea area.

As well as offering individual support, we provide small educational grants to local organisations and also strategic grants (over up to 3 years)  to support larger educational projects. 

 

 

Small Education Grants of up to £1,000 are available for local community and voluntary organisations for educational activities and projects.   Priority will be given to projects or activities working with children from the following groups:

  • Those living in areas of particular social disadvantage
  • Refugee and asylum seeking children and young people
  • Disabled children and young people
  • Young carers
  • Looked after children, and care leavers

The next deadlines for the receipt of applications are:

Strategic Grants – Through its Strategic Grants programme, the Charity is supporting organisations to carry out work with children from two priority groups:

  • refugees of secondary school age, in particular, unaccompanied minors and those with little or no previous experience of formal education
  • young carers
  • disaffected/low-achieving children/young people in danger of dropping out of education

The Charity will make grants of up to £30,000 per year for up to three years to support educational projects working with children and young people from these groups in Wandsworth and/or Lambeth.
