The Ironmongers’ Company has grants available of up to £10,000 to registered charities to support projects that provide opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people to fulfill their potential. Projects must meet all of the following criteria:
- Be for children and young people under the age of 25 who are disadvantaged
- Include educational activities that develop learning, motivation and skills
- Have clear aims and objectives to be met within a planned timescale
- Be in the UK.
Priority will be given to projects that are enabling primary age children to develop a strong foundation for the future, for example, support special educational needs, address behavioural problems or promote citizenship, parenting or life skills.
Preference will be also given to projects piloting new approaches where the outcomes will be disseminated to a wider audience. Although the grants are available within the UK preference is given to projects in inner London.
Schools can apply if they are a registered charity for children/young people with disabilities.
The next deadline for applications is 31st July 2017.
