The Trust is an education charity. It makes grants totalling up to £1 million each year towards education projects for children and young people under the age of 25 who are from disadvantaged backgrounds or disabled.
Grants can be made for projects throughout the UK. Overseas projects are also funded, but only through UK registered charities. Organisations based outside of the UK are not eligible to apply.
There are no deadlines. We operate a rolling programme, so applications can be made at any time, and we are usually able to let you have a decision on your application within eight weeks.
